There are all sorts of different types of frosting–or icing, as it’s also called–all of which make your cakes and cupcakes finished and gorgeous.
From buttercream to fondant or candy clay to canned, there’s so much you can do with frosting. Decorate a cake, cupcakes, cookies, and more, or use frosting as a filling in cupcakes and donuts.
You can add food coloring to your frosting to make it the color you desire, or add sprinkles or colored sugar for a more festive look and feel.
Other ideas are those hard sugar treats we’ve all come to know and love. They might say, “Happy Birthday,” or they might feature a beloved cartoon character, which is fun for kids’ birthday parties. Frosting and frosting decorations are just the “icing on the cake.”
