A simple yet wonderful icing that go on with lots of your cakes and cupcakes...This is a basic icing so I am giving it as a separate post..I recommend you to add honey in this frosting because that gives you the glossy effect,you could also add cornsyrup in this..You could make this icing and set this in fridge,but take it out of the fridge a couple hours ago before you frost any cakes...Hope you all learnt a good icing recipe now,so wait for my cakes and cupcake recipe that calls for this...
