Posted by pansy-girlThis is my favorite icing to use as far as tastiness goes, but it is a little hard to deal with on account of all the butter. The icing gets very smooth and some people have thought it was a cream cheese icing from how it looked. One lady asked me to make an Oreo frosting, so I used this recipe and then broke little pieces of Oreo cookies into it and mixed it up well. That actually spread pretty well over the cake, but of course, you wouldn't be able to do any decorating with it on account of all the chunks of Oreos! One other thing I should mention is that, on account of the butter, this icing is not a pure white color, but more of a cream color.
The best tasting icing I've ever had!
- 2 lbs powedered sugar 1/4 cup white flour 1 1/2 cups butter 1/4 tsp. salt 2 tsps. clear vanilla 1 tsp. almond extract 1/3 cup water
Mix half of the powdered sugar with the other first 3 ingredients. Then, add liquids and the rest of the sugar. Don't overbeat this icing or you'll get air bubbles, just mix it well. This recipe can be used for decorating... If you've ever read, Nourishing Traditions, this recipe will not seem so unhealthy to you! Most people would be shocked to hear that real butter is good for them, but it's true...
