Frosted Cake

If you’ve ever noticed that not all icings are created equally, you’re definitely right. Many icings are so sweet, they take away from the deliciousness of your cake or cupcakes.

Well, this recipe is different. It’s creamy and has just the right sweetness.

Bowl of Frosting

The frosting keeps well in the fridge for about 1 week. Just make sure to mix it well before using, so it will have a creamy texture again.

I've tried this recipe twice and both times my icing is a little runny and looks separated no matter how long I beat it. I've followed the recipe exactly as it states. Has this happened to anyone and what can I do differently? I want it to turn out so bad!!! Thank you!

Angela, thanks so much for bringing this to my attention! I always forget to add one of my steps when writing the recipe. LOL! You add it with the butter and vanilla. I have updated the recipe now. :-)
