How to make icing for a cake?

how do you make icing for a cake without wasting too much money? I made a cake and tried to make some icing, but it was too sweet and not as white as in the store.What can I do!? Does anybody know a good recipe?

Answer #1

2 cups powdered sugar (sifted) 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 2 tablespoons milk

Mix the powdered sugar with the vanilla and milk. Then add more milk a bit at a time until it is thin enough to drizzle over a cake. Once you’ve iced your cake, it’s best to let it stand for one or two hours.

To make chocolate icing, add two tablespoons cocoa powder when you mix the powdered sugar and follow the rest of the recipe above.


Answer #2

Oh all you need is:

Sugar Vannila Water.

Good luck, I hope I helped!

Answer #3

One easy way to do is just mix icing sugar and water together in a bowl and it’ll make a white sweet icing.

Answer #4

Here is a great but not too sweet icing recipe.

Blend 1 stick of butter, 8 tablespoons of crisco, and 1 can of Eagle Brand Condensed Milk. Blend until smooth and white. Add a capful of Vanilla. Blend more. Done. This is very good - though it may not sound like it.

Some tips. Use real vanilla extract not imitation. Make sure you make the frosting before the cake because a heated kitchen will make the icing not blend well.

Answer #5

cinamon roll icing

2 tablespoons soft butter 3-4 tablespoons cream cheese 1/4 teaspoon vanilla pinch salt 1/2 c confectioner’s sugar
