What’s your favorite part of a cake? For me, it’s the frosting. Don’t dare give me a naked cake.
Even when it comes to pound cake, I want a lemon or vanilla glaze puddled on the top and running down the sides. That’s why I’m excited to share 20 of the best frostings ever.
Icing or Frosting?
Whether you call it icing or frosting, for me, it’s the best part of the cake.
Actually, icing is generally thin and glossy and frosting is thick and fluffy. Either way, I’ll take one of each.
The first frosting and icing recipe dates back to 1655. Rosewater was used in the frosting. Seems that rosewater was trendy way back when.
According to Leaf TV, “Hostess Bakery sold the first mass-produced cupcakes in 1919. Frosted cupcakes did not appear until the 1950s. Buttercream frosting, made of powdered sugar, butter, cream, and flavorings, appeared around the same time.”
These days, we can find recipes for Lavender Frosting, Salted Caramel Buttercream, and Butter Rum. I love every frosting, but cream cheese remains my very favorite.
