For the baby shower I may have gone crazy with the icing on the cupcakes but they make everything so very pretty. I am a fan of Rainbow frosting. Truly the easiest thing in the world if you like original. Ad a few spoonfuls of one colour of icing to your tube, then add a second colour and maybe even a third. The frosting will come out in a kaleidoscope of colour for you adding texture and originality
I used Yellow and Blue sticking with the nautical theme.
My recipe for Buttercream Frosting
1 cup butter ( and you must whip the butter for fifteen minutes, that is the secret)
2-3 tsp Vanilla ( Mexican is what I insist on)
5 cups icing sugar
2-3 tbsp whipping cream ( or coffee cream or even Baileys)
( if you want chocolate add 2-3 tbsp cocoa)
There ya have it the easiest, tastiest icing you can have.
Do these not look awesome and mouthwatering…..
