Does anyone have a recipe for frosting that you can actually eat?

Wilton frosting is horrible! Does anyone have a frosting I can decorate with and eat?

  • Sure! (I'm a cake decorator.) =)

    Melt one cube of butter in the microwave so it's almost liquid but not quite. Pour it into a mixing bowl. Add 1 box/bag of powdered sugar (1lb) Blend until it's the consistency of wet sand. Add milk 2 drops at a time while mixing on high to beat air into it. It will only take like 8 drops! If you add too much you'll get icing. =)

    *If you add too much milk ('Cause it's easy to do!!) you can add a few TBS of powdered sugar to try to even it back out.

    *You can also add a little cocoa powder to make chocolate frosting.
