All About

Frostings

Creamy frosting elevates cakes and cupcakes from humble treats to spectacular desserts. Frosting flavors range from pure vanilla buttercream and deep, dark chocolate to tangy cream cheese, but all share a silky richness. Using decorating tips and offset spatulas, you can pipe and swirl frosting into bakery-worthy sweets.

recipe

Royal icing goes on smooth and dries with a hard finish, so it's ideal for decorating. Spread this royal icing recipe over your favorite sugar cookies. If you're making a royal icing recipe for children, pregnant women, or anyone with compromised immune systems, use meringue powder, found in the baking aisle of most markets, instead of raw egg whites.
