In the Cakeyboi Alphabet, I is for Icing
Is there a difference between Icing and Frosting I have often wondered. Certainly Frosting is a much more American term, but I have often heard the two used in place of one another.
But online, I found this...
Icing is composed more of sugar, is put on the cake with a little bit thinner consistency, and then hardens some on the cake.
Where as frosting, on the other hand, is much more rich and creamy. It is thicker and fluffier than icing and usually has more butter/fats in it. (hence the reason for the richer taste).
I think this sums up, what I have always thought! Thanks answers.yahoo.com!
