Hi everyone,

I am a newbie here and in the cake decorating world, and am self teaching myself new skills..

I was wondering if anyone had a receipe for the icing that you put on christmas cakes , you know the white icing, also like the stuff that goes on wedding cakes..

I want to ice my christmas cakes this year, and have tried the store bought icing to roll out and cover the cake with and did not like the taste of it.. So I wanted to try my own.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

Welcome to Cake Central. If by 'icing' you want a rolled icing, there are several recipes here that you can try for rolled fondant.

There are versions of MMF-marshmallow fondant
There are recipes in most cake books

When you make it yourself you can add flavoring as part of the liquid which helps the taste.

Welcome!

It sounds like you are looking for a rolled fondant recipe. Our recipe section has several and they are even rated with stars!

If it's another type of icing you want, just click on the "recipes" tab above. There is a search feature, and type in icing or frosting and look at the different recipes for something that appeals to you.
