    cupcake icing recipe?

    I'm interested to know what icing recipe you use to ice your cupcakes. I'm highly inspired by http://www.cupcakestakethecake.blogspot.com/ and think I might make some tonight for my SnB tomorrow.

    I really want some kick-ass icing though...any suggestions?

    MANY THANKS!!!

    I don't have a recipe, but I generally love buttercream frosting.

    Otherwise, I just used the canned stuff.

    whipping heavy cream and adding sugar (confectioner's is best, but i've used the standard granulated sugar) is amazing and simple. it doesn't take measurements really. goes great with yellow cake and fruit on top.

    i second buttercream icing. it is super easy if you have an electric mixer. basically just butter, an egg yolk (get a pasteurized egg if your cupcakes will be eaten by children, the elderly, pregant women etc) and confectioners sugar. then you can add vanilla, or melted chocolate, or instant espresso, or whatever you like to flavor/color it. it is old fashioned but yum! probably will be a more exact recipe at Epicurious...
