I am new to the site, and new to baking.. I recently received a KA mixer.. and have been wanting to make cakes and learn how to decorate them!
I have tried a couple different recipes for buttercream icing/frosting...but nothing tastes what I want.. I want the stuff you get at your local grocery store/sams club/walmart bakerys... the really sweet one.. if anyone knows of any good recipes id love to try them!!! thank you!
