Crusting Caramel Buttercream Icing

Posted by zespri This is a Martha Stewart recipe. I wasn't able to find any caramel buttercream recipes on cakecentral by searching, so figured I'd share this one as it is yummy!

Brown Sugar Whipped Icing

Posted by AnniesEdibles What can I say about this icing? It's sweet, but not too sweet. It's smooth. It's not greasy. It's light and airy and just melts in your mouth.

Ingredients 1 cup milk 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1½ cup brown sugar 1 cup butter (2... read more
