15 Fabulous Frosting Recipes

Frosting makes everything better! Whether you spread it on cakes, cookies, cupcakes, graham crackers or eat it off a spoon, it is all good! Here are 15 delicious frosting recipes ranging from fun to fruity along with some foundation frosting recipes. 

      My love for all things frosting runs deep.  In fact the main reason why I bake a cake is normally because I have an idea for a frosting I want to try.  I know I am not the only one with an affinity for frosting either because my frosting board in Pinterest is my most popular one.... by far! 

      So I thought it would be fun to get a collection of delicious looking frosting recipes together for you.  The problem is as I was collecting these delicious recipes I got hungry.

    Now I want to bake lots of cakes and make all of the fabulous frostings! The only problem is what to make first?! Why do I do this to myself? 

       Don't worry, I will manage to survive and my family will be getting plenty of fun frosting at upcoming family dinners.  In the meantime I will have plenty of sweet dreams filled with buttercream, ermine, caramel, coffee, oranges, apricots, raspberries and more.  Just wait until you see these beauties! 

      I won't keep you any longer, there is frosting to see!
