You don't have to go to the store to pick up a can of frosting. You can make some yourself! It'll taste even better than anything that you'd find on a shelf at the supermarket. Plus, it's easier than it looks. If you're interested, here are a few videos that'll teach you how to make some homemade frosting:
1. How to Make Buttercream Frosting
For this recipe, you're only going to need vanilla extract, whole milk, butter, and powdered sugar. Once you mix all of those ingredients together in an electric mixer, you're all done! Then you can start icing your cakes, cupcakes, or brownies. Of course, if you don't like the white shade that the ingredients create, you could always dye it a different color by adding a few drops of food dye and mixing it together again.
2. How to Make Chocolate Frosting
In order to create milk chocolate frosting, you should grab some powdered sugar, milk chocolate, whole milk, vanilla essence, unsweetened cocoa, and softened butter. Throw the ingredients together in an electric mixture (saving the melted milk chocolate for last), and then you're all finished! It's the perfect way for chocolate lovers to fulfill their cravings.
3. How to Make Royal Icing
This video explains the three main type of icing, which are royal icing, confectioner's icing, and rolled fondant. In order to create the royal icing, you're going to need powdered sugar, cream of tartar, and egg whites. If you're unhappy with the shade of your icing, you can always add some white food coloring in order to make it look its best.
4. How to Make Cream Cheese Frosting
If you've ever had red velvet cake, then you've probably had cream cheese frosting before, because they go together perfectly. For this recipe, you're going to need powdered sugar, lemon juice, milk, softened butter, and cream cheese. When you're done, you can smooth it on top of any type of dessert and enjoy!
5. How to Make Fondant
If you want your desserts to look fancy, then you should probably try decorating them with fondant instead of the icing that you're used to using. It makes a perfectly smooth coating for cakes, as long as you roll it out to a quarter-inch thickness. To make it, you're going to need gelatin, cold water, glucose syrup, glycerin, shortening, and powdered sugar. It's the hardest type of icing to make, but it's also the most impressive.
6. How to Make Strawberry Icing
If you prefer strawberry to vanilla and chocolate, then you're going to love this recipe. All you'll need is softened butter, powdered sugar, and strawberries that have been soaked in sugar. Mix all of your ingredients together and you'll have icing that tastes exactly like strawberries.
7. How to Make Whipped Cream
You don't have to add traditional icing to the top of your desserts. You can top them with some whipped cream instead. Don't spray it out of a container from the store! Instead, grab some heavy cream and granulated sugar. Mix it together in an electric mixture and then you're all done. How easy is that?
If you think that this frosting looks good, wait until you taste it! It won't let you down. How do you usually make your homemade frosting?
