I'm looking for a tasty buttercream icing recipe. I don't like Wilton's as it doesn't taste so great- more like it's oily.

 

Thanks!

P.S. It's for practicing my decorations not necessarily for eating.

AFor practice use Wilton. For eating, do a search on this site. There are hundreds of recipes and you just have to do the research to figure out which one you like the best. It took me a few years to tweak one that I'm happy with.

If you are looking for a powdered sugar based icing, this is a good one.

If you are looking for a less sweet, smoother mouth feel frosting, try Swiss meringue buttercream (SMBC).  Here is a really good recipe and directions/explanation on how to make it.

Thanks AnnieCahall!

 

I guess that might be the best way. I'm not interested in icing with it but just practicing.

Spooky_789- thanks! I'll have to try that with a cake I have coming up.
