"The Icing on the Cake!" Unabashedly rich, these are the perfect toppings and fillings to make your cake extra-special.
From cream cheese to fruit flavors and even matcha green tea, there is an icing flavor to match any cake or cookie. Then there are fillings that can be used to top cake layers, fill a pie, tart or anything else you can dream up.
Frostings and fillings can be simple to make or more complicated and time consuming. Sometimes it is only a matter of how long one chooses to whip a frosting that makes the difference between a simple or more complex texture. Longer whipping means lighter and fluffier, where less whipping means heavier and denser. Each style has a place, depending on the desired outcome. Too long can mean there are too many air bubbles to effectively use certain icing tips. Trying to decorate with stringwork would be futile with an icing that is filled with air bubbles. That same icing would be lovely for use to cover the cake.
Whatever your need, I hope to fill them here, with frostings that I have used over time, and some brand new.
