Test Kitchen: Frosting

So, every time I follow the butter cream frosting recipe that I have, it always comes out very thin and doesn't hold it's shape. Until today!! I decided to leave the milk to the end and add very little amounts at a time, until I got the thickness I wanted. I hardly used any milk, only 15ml, and it came out the perfect consistency, just what I was looking for. Here are some photos of the frosting with the new piping set I got this weekend.

Star Swirl
Giant Star

Smooth Swirl

Which one do you like?

500g Icing Sugar
160g unsalted butter
15ml whole milk
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

Mix on low speed until icing sugar is all mixed in then mix on a high speed until light and fluffy.

    I like the Giant Star, it is very unique looking.

  2. Smooth swirl. :) I like that it looks like ice cream.

  3. Smooth swirl. Definitely looks more contemporary!
