This is an incredibly easy frosting recipe that only requires 5 ingredients. That's it, only five ingredients and you will have the best frosting to add to cakes, cupcakes or to have a spoonful of here and there if you like. Frosting recipes and icing recipes are great for adding that little extra something to a cake. They add a nice, sweet and creamy layer that compliments a delicate cake so nicely. They also add some colour since they can take on literally any colour you like. Icing and frosting have slight differences, yet they both use sugar. Icing recipes usually use butter in them, like in a butter cream icing. Frostings usually use either white sugar or icing sugar, but it depends on the recipe.
