If you are planning to bake a cake at your home, it will be beneficial to know the standard cake frosting options out there so that you can choose the right one for your chosen cake. Here, is an explanation on different frosting options:
- Buttercream Frosting
Buttercream needs beating butter into the icing sugar until you get a frosting consistency. The more you beat, the fluffier you will get. It is a popular frosting type for cupcakes.
- Cream Cheese Frosting
Cream cheese frosting means consistency from thick to thin. It can be used for both filling and icing. It is made from whisking butter, sugar, cream cheese and flavoring. Later, it is refrigerated and mostly found on desserts.
- Cooked Frostings
This one is also known as the seven-minute frosting and made from egg whites, sugar and flavorings. When the mixture gets heat, it will form a meringue. As it involves the heating process, the frosting is extremely delicate and needs to be eaten on the very first day to prevent frosting being absorbed in the dessert or cake.
