    Best Ever Cookie Icing!

    Kathleen Kern from GERMANTOWN, TN

    I have used this recipe for my cut cookies for more than 10 years. Everyone always raves and my kids are always disappointed when they catch me trying out a new icing recipe. They know the difference immediately. It is very creamy and takes a while to dry, but it dries really pretty. I recommend icing your cookies while the icing is still warm and runny. It spreads easier and dries prettier. The almond flavoring is our favorite.

    Decorating Frosting

    Darlene Conant from OGDENSBURG, NY

    This was very different. I made for a cake that I took to work and had different comments. Overall it was very good. Everyone thought it had a good texture, not over sweet, creamy, and fluffy. I would not hesitate to use it again.

    This Icing is sooo versital, use it on cookies, sweet breads after they cooled, or on any varity of cakes. Your baked goods will stay moist instead of drying out, like some do with traditional powdered sugar icing, and your gonna love the simplicity of it.

    Great for Cakes

    anna case from charleston, SC

    I tried this icing on top of a carrot cake and it was fabulous. It is very yummy and has a great texture, however I did have a hard time decorating with it. It may have just been me since I'm not very practiced at cake decorating.

    Worth the time!

    michelle drake from riga, MI

    I tried this recipe for the first time for the Easter holiday. It was the best tasting and richest frosting I have ever had. It was more work than I usually take for frosting; but well worth the time. I recommend one try it.

    Nestle White Chocolate Decorator Icing

    LORI MISCH from Weirton, WV

    Mmmmmmm!!! Finally an icing that contains my favorite creamy, smooth Nestle white chocolate!!! Once you microwave a bowl of icing (and how easy is that?!) you will never go back to ordinary sugar and water icing again! Easy to make, easy to work with, easy on the eye-and the most important factor-easy to savor! The optional flavorings are fun to experiment with also!
