indydebi for sure icon_smile.gif

If your icing is too loose, add more sugar, or use less liquid to start with HTH icon_smile.gif

You've probably iced your cupcakes by now, but i do a very simple buttercream.
250g butter (at room temp)
3 cups icing sugar
4 tbs milk

beat butter till very light and fluffy, add icing sugar and then milk if required, flavour with vanilla.
If mixture is too soft add more icing sugar.
