I know that there are many recipes for Butter cream icing but I was wondering which recipe works the best for decorating. I am a novice decorator and I have been using a Wilton recipe that seems to not hold color very well I have tried looking up recipes but nothing seems to be working for me.
Thanks for your help
Yollie!

I've only used one recipe for 30 years: http://forum.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-611706-.html

Here's a thread where it's being discussed, so you might touch base with others who have tried it ('coz I'm a little biased! icon_rolleyes.gif ):
