Recipe by Sarah Phillips © 2007 Sarah Phillips CraftyBaking.com
I have adapted this recipe from Toba Garrett, famed cake decorator. I learned about it when I took numerous cake decorating classes from her over the years.
Toba says: "My decorator's staple remains an old reliable when all else fails. I use the recipe over and over again. It can be flavored and tinted in any color and flavor imaginable. My Decorator's Buttercream Icing even performs well in warm weather and pairs well with any butter cake recipe, plus I use it all the time when decorating cakes." Toba demos how to use the icing in our How To Section: Cakes - Frost Cake Layers Using a Piping Bag.
