  • I say both, but I'm talking about two different things when I say it.


    When I think of icing, I think of something that is more sugary and hardens after it sets a while (e.g. like some icings on sugar cookies). It's so sweet, you usually use a thinner layer.



     


    When I think of frosting, it's something thicker, fluffier, and creamier than icing.

  • I think I use both ... I haven't really paid attention. Pretty sure that I say "icing".


    OH! I'm from NC ... proud Southern girl.

  • I use both, actually. I'm mostly from VA (lived here most of my life), but I was born in NC and lived there about half of my childhood, so I still use most of the "lingo" I picked up there.

  • For those that say both- how do you distinguish between what is frosting and what is icing. I myself call it frosting but consider icing something like what you make from powdered sugar.
