Recipe by Andi of Longmeadow

This is my *go to* icing recipe. Whether vegan or not, use this creamy icing for all sorts of baked goodies. Muffins, cupcakes, cinnamon rolls or bread, banana bread, carrot cake, or just plain cake.

Absolutely a great basic icing recipe. I was short on the butter, (by half I think), and it still worked out really well. I used it to ice a batch of cupcakes (was ableto ice about 9 cupcakes really well). Thanks Andi!
