Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2012
this is a great recipe for decorating. It is actually the exact recipe found on Wiltons website. As far as different people using less sugar and more milk, this really depends on WHAT YOU ARE USING IT FOR. if you are simply frosing a cake or cupcakes it is great to thin it out for a softer creamier frosting. However if you are decorating flowers or other things on a cake or cookies with decorater tips it is necessary to use it thicker to hold the shapes. Hope this helps. To make a fabulous chocolate buttercream just add 3/4 C cocoa and an extra TBS or two of milk depending on how thick you want it.
