Cake icing recipes - 78 recipes

Cake icing (or frosting, depending on where you come from) is typically cream cheese based or buttercream. The sky is the limit when it comes to cake icing! Icing or frosting a cake is what takes it from classic to a work of art in just one step. The recipe is simple and incredibly versatile; taking a cream cheese or buttercream icing base, you can then add flavoring (like vanilla, mint, strawberry, lemon) or coloring (think bright pink icing for a little girl's birthday party, or neon orange for Halloween). So let's get icing!
