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 delicioius. It's not as sickly as buttercream but is much nicer than plain glace icing. It sets, but not too solidly, so it's in between butter icing & glace. This makes enough to ice and fill and 8inch cake.
