This is the most commonly used icing by people around us And it makes sense. It ain’t as complicated as Butter cream. It’s soft, buttery and works excellent to ice, write or decorate both cakes and cupcakes. And allows you to play with different colors and flavors. Be creative and amaze yourself and others around you.
