Bakery Shop Icing

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
Wow! I made two birthday cakes yesterday for my mom and sister. I wanted something really special but not overly done so I whipped up a classic white cake and added sprinkles to the batter. I looked everywhere for an icing that caught my eye and this was it. I thought it was a bit tasteless, we're a 'the sweeter the better' type of family, so I added two tablespoons of confectioner's sugar to the finished icing. I also found it hard to use as it stuck to everything but the cake. I might try to put it in the fridge for a 1/2-1 hour before use next time. Despite everything I thought while making it, it really offset the taste of the cake perfectly and the sprinkles I added onto it really made for a beautiful picture. I don't think our family has had a better tasting cake that wasn't store bought so I'll be using it for all my white cake birthday cakes in the future.
