A simple icing yes, but very nice.
I assume that "icing sugar" is confectioners sugar. Don't be fooled, this is a great icing.

Having trouble posting but this is a wonderful simple icing and better than store-bought.

Aarthi, for how many days it stays good. Whether we have to do icing for cake on same day or it can be stored in fridge and can be used later. Please reply


Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@AnonymousI dont recommend storing it, you have to make it fresh. If you store it in fridge it will get hard.

@saraI think it needs more milk. Add milk slowly and beat till creamy.

Does it gets melted if kept outside overnight?

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@Vasantha Karthicno it wont get melted. But it is best to store this in fridge, then bring back to room temp before using
