Hooray. Success. Well I love baking and decorating cupcakes. The only problem is when you use butter, if it gets to warm, it melts and starts to slide off the cupcake! Not so pretty then. SO I pmed a trusted source, Chocolate Chic.

I knew if any one had a good recipe it would be her. She provided the following recipe. I pmed her again to ask if it was okay if I shared her recipe. She said she didn’t mind at all.`

I have a great icing recipe that will not fall off. Tastes wonderful too.

1 c. shortening
1 tsp. vanilla
3 tbsp. milk or water
1 lb (4 c.) xxx sugar
1 tbsp. meringue powder
pinch salt

Cream shortening, vanilla and water. Add dry ingredients. If this is still thick, you can add another tbsp. water.

You can find meringue powder at Walmart in the cake decorating isle.

Thanx again Chocolatechic!!

    Well the neighborhood certainly is. I am enjoying decorating them. lol This just gives me a good excuse to make them and not eat them. When I make them for myself I will use the butter and eat it quickly! haha
