world's best icing recipe
Ok, so I got the cake in a cup explained, next, I have to tell you probably the best part of it. The icing. I have to tell you, my icing is da' bomb. No really. It's ridiculously good. And there is one simple trick. Want to know what it is? Read on.
Get your butter get to room temperature.
Beat it with an electric mixer.
Have 2 cups of icing sugar in a measuring cup, and slowly mix in parts with the butter.
It will look a little crumbly.
Here is the magic ingredient. Almond flavouring. Add in the teaspoon ...
Beat the mixture again - the almond flavouring will not only add flavour, but the needed liquid to make it smoother.
Add 1/2 a cup of more icing sugar to the mix. You can add a dash of warm water to the mixture, if you find it too thick. Don't add too much water - it really quickly makes an icing go too runny. Should you make it too runny, just add some extra icing sugar.
Ta-da! That's it! It's thick, bursting with flavour and oh-so bad for you.
