I dont' have separate icings for cakes vs cupcakes so if you are happy with your cake icing, I'd go ahead and use that.

Now if you want a biased opinion .... try this recipe! icon_rolleyes.gif

I use the same icing on my cakes as I do my cupcakes!
I use indydebis - its soooo good!
If you search it - you will see and it's very easy to make!

We don't have crisco, but I just googled, I think the closest thing is butter.. I don't think we have dream whip either! Not sure what clear vanilla is, all my vanillas are brown, I'll have to have a shop around for that too icon_smile.gif

Crisco is a white vegetable shortening. Looks like lard but no animal fat ... vegetable shortening.

Dream Whip is a powder that you mix with milk and beat the bah-jeebers out of it and it turns to whipped cream. (But you use just the powder in the icing recipe).

Using brown vanilla is ok, but your icing will have a tint. I use brown vanilla when I want to make off-white, tan, beige, fleshtone, ivory, etc., colored icing.
