Best White Icing Ever

Rating: 4 stars 436
This icing recipe is #1! It's quick and easy to make, bright white for cake decorating, and you can easily change it's consistency! This is the most important icing recipe you'll ever have. It's so basic, it makes the hassle of cake decorating so much easier! If you wish, use half shortening and half unsalted butter.

Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting

Rating: 4.5 stars 1196
This is a YUMMY whipped cream frosting that is very stable and does not melt at room temperature unlike many standard whipped cream frostings. It also makes a GREAT dip for fresh fruit -- not too sweet, just right! This recipe is GREAT for a stand mixer but will work with any good mixer.

Very Easy! Add a little more water to ice the cake and a little less to make the decorations!

Light and fluffy icing. Perfect for an angel food cake. You would swear it was a boiled frosting, all the taste, very little effort! I like to change it up a bit and use maple or peppermint extract instead of the vanilla.
