Wilton Buttercream Icing

10 mins (prep 10)
5 ingredients
3 servings
This icing is from Wilton, I did the cake decorating course last year and this was the recipe used. This basic recipe gives a stiff icing which is great for making roses and other flowers, but can be thinned down by adding a teaspoon of water at a time to get the consistency you need, for a medium icing for piping add an extra 1 teaspoon of water/milk. For a thin icing to put a base frosting on the cake, add 2 teaspoons of milk/water. I usually use a combination of almond and vanilla extract, and if you are maikng a pure white icing use a clear extract, Wilton do a range of these.
