Charlotte's Sour Cream Icing

READY IN: 7mins
Recipe by Cinda Lu

Easy light fluffy icing. Firm enough to pipe a border around a cake, yet soft enough to fluff up. I have made this for several wedding cakes, topping with white chocolate curls. A pretty addition to this is to dip strawberries in the white chocolate and place around the cake. Or add food coloring and use in a multitude of ways. I used this icing over the weekend to make a layered blue cake with "whitecaps" and added duckies to match the "Blue Baby Shower Punch" 114506. It was a huge success.

  2. Spread on cake, keep in refrigerator.
  3. This makes enough to ice a 10" 2 layer cake.
