About this recipe: Great for any cake or cupcake, easy to pipe, can also be used on biscuits. I recommend this icing if you have to take your cake/s to a party, as plastic wrap will not stick to it and make a mess. This made icing for 24 cupcakes.
This is the perfect Sugar Cookie frosting. I baked the "Blue Ribbon Sugar Cookies" submitted by:Angie Seaman, and used this frosting with sprinkles. I have a cookie jar filled with perfectly delightful tasting cookies. They make the best combination, and I am switching to them both from now on. This frosting starts off softer on the cookies and then hardens up enough to stack them without being crunchy. Absolute perfection. - 06 Jan 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This frosting came out great! What I did was I divided the frosting into four different bowls after adding the vanilla extract. Then I put 2 drops of different food colorings into each bowl so I could decorate some easter sugar cookies I made. It worked out perfect and it made a lot of frosting! - 17 Apr 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
We really liked this icing. It's a lot like the icing that my Mother made years ago. Only she added a bit of cream of tartar. This recipe is easy to work with as well. If you want to change the taste for something a little different try adding a little vanilla, or almond extract, even lemon extract. For a few ideas.
