    Dwynnie's Note:

    This is a recipe that was given in the packet from a workshop I took at the Wilton school. It is a very good recipe and isn't exactly like any of the other buttercream recipes I saw! Great for decoration or for icing (once it is thinned with a little milk/cream). The picture is of a cake with royal icing roses and 3 Tbs of Kahlua added to the buttercream.

      This icing recipe is perfect. It's an easy recipe to follow and the consistency is just right every time. I like the addition of the whipping cream to keep it lighter than others I've tried. Thanks for posting!

      I made this frosting to use for icing and decorating cookies. It had just the right consistency to make the cookie decorations and also thinned out nicely for icing them. I really liked it because it didn't taste as overwhelmingly sweet as do some other icings. Thanks for posting!
