I am making a beach/schools out cake today and wondering
how much icing i will use if i am coving and filling a 16 in by 11 in cake? Also any super easy filling ideas to go with a marble cake would be a help. I need to make this for tomorrow. I think i will be using Indydebi's Crisco-Based Buttercream Icing, or Best Ever Butter Cream Frosting

What is the difference between icing and frosting?
