An easy to make egg-free icing that works great for decorating cakes for birthdays. When you need to add colouring to icing, use colour paste. If you use liquid colouring, you may need to add more icing sugar.
This is a great recipe to have. I used it to ice cupcakes. However add the icing sugar gradually as you might not want to add as much as it says. I used 450g instead and it was sweet enough! - 10 Feb 2011
Good basic buttercream recipe, but careful with how much you make - I halved the recipe and still had a fair bit left over after icing a whole sandwich cake. - 24 Oct 2011
