That recipe will make stiff icing. You add water or milk to thin it down to what you need. I don't have the exact measurments in front of me, but if you have your course 3 book, it will also have that recipe along with how many teaspons of water/milk to add in order to make it medium and then down to thin. I'm sure someone else will have those numbers for you. Good luck and enjoy.

I just finished course 1 and the recipe in the book will make the stiff consistency BC icing.

So when you make up your batch of stiff BC icing, separate 1 cup each for the thin and medium consistency.

For medium add 1 tablespoon of milk or water, for thin add 2 tablespoons milk or water. mix well.

Thats it icon_smile.gif
