What's your favorite frosting and why?

ctl98 | Apr 26, 2007 08:29 PM

I seem to not have found a frosting recipe that I really like. I started making cupcakes and I've tried the buttercream frosting and 7 minute frosting from Joy of Cooking. I've also tried making buttercream with just butter and no egg whites.

I just haven't been pleased with any of the ones I tried. The buttercreams had a very greasy mouthfeel and the 7 minute frosting did not stay smooth. Am I doing something wrong? Do you have a go to frosting that stays soft and creamy and smooth and yet does not feel too oily in your mouth?

Sorry for the long post...thanks!!!
