Butter Cream Icing

This recipe with ice and decorate a 2″ 9×13″ cake. Also I use a Kitchen Aide stand mixer with the stainless steel bowl and attachments. (I believe the bowl makes a difference) I always put my bowl and wisk attachment in the freezer for about 5 mins. before I start. (I have noticed that the weather really effects the consistancy, so you might have to add more or less powdered sugar to get the consistency that you like to work with)

  • 1/2 C. Cold Water
