Hi! What represent in qty 1 stick of butter? Thanks!
1 stick of butter is 1/2 cup. Sorry!! =)
Can you decorate with this frosting? I need to make a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting but they want basket weave can it be done with this recipe?
Jen, I think if you add more powdered sugar to the icing it should thicken up enough to decorate. Just a suggestion. Happy decorating!! =)
also try cornstarch to stiffen the icing up and cut back on the sweetness
Will this frosting crust like buttercream?
When I used it it crusted rather well but its not as solid as like wilton buttercream. thanks for the recipe by the way. it was delicious!
Can you add color to this frosting?
Erica, A box of sugar, if it is even sold this way anymore all - I see are 2 pound bags now, is very close to 4 cups. It was always 1 pound of powdered sugar.
Erika, I love your Grandma!!!! This is the easiest and the fastest icing receipe ever!!!! I doubled it and was very pleased. It did not work as a crumb coating but I was in a big hurry so I want to try it when I have more time. Thanks a million to you and grandma!!!
