I am on the hunt for a new icing recipe. I've used the traditional buttercream icing, but I've not been able to make it without having that gritty texture to it. I've tried a Meringue (I can't remember if it was Swiss or Italian) icing recipe, and I thought it tasted too buttery, but I loved the smooth texture.
What I'm looking for is a not-so-sweet icing that has good flavor and is not gritty in texture.
Oh, and it has to stand up well to piping, making flowers, etc.
I use Sharon's (Sugarshack) bc icing recipe and tips, I love it!...but it is what works for me. It gets great remarks for others who use it.
Here are some links that may help you out to do with Sugarshack's icing recipe.
Hope this helps!
EDITED: to add the right link
Thanks for the information!
Your Welcome, I hope it helps .
I really like cakemanOH's Brite White hi-ratio frosting (especially when made with 6x powdered sugar):
