1/2 Photos of Basic Buttercream Icing
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.
