Nomnomnom! 4 Flavourful Cake Frosting Recipes That You Cannot Miss!

Nomnomnom! 4 Flavourful Cake Frosting Recipes That You Cannot Miss!

Frosting can make or break a cake. No matter how great your cake tastes, it has to have the right icing to be, well, the icing on the cake! While it may seem like an unnecessary extra step given how many store-bought frostings are now available, homemade frosting is infinitely better tasting and very easy to make! These four frosting recipes are easy, versatile, and sure to please any baker. Just be sure to whip up a little extra, because you’re going to want a taste!

1. Buttercream frosting

Buttercream frosting is a staple for most bakers and cake aficionados, due to its versatility. This icing can be easily paired with many different flavors of cake, including chocolate, spice, and vanilla.

    Buttercream is also extremely easy to make, as it uses only four ingredients, which you probably already have in your home. Because buttercream frosting is white, it’s easy to add dye and make it into any color you like! This is a great option for themed cakes for parties or events, and can be a great tool for people looking to dip their toes into the world of cake decorating. Buttercream is also a perfect option for cupcakes, due to its light and fluffy texture. You can find detailed instructions and ingredients here.

    2. Whipped cream frosting

    Whipped cream icing is light and airy, and delivers all the great taste of whipped topping with the stability and density of cake frosting. And since it is homemade, you won’t have to deal with any of the chemicals or unnatural ingredients that so often come with store-bought whipped toppings.

      Thanks to its airiness, this frosting is not as sweet as many other frostings, meaning it is a great option for people who have less of a sweet tooth but still want to whip up a great dessert. It can also help balance out the sweetness in the cake itself, if you have made something especially rich or intensely flavored. This recipe only calls for a handful of ingredients, all of which can be found easily at the supermarket, and also includes a chocolate variety for those who want a little extra cocoa flavor in their frosting. You can find both recipes here.

      3. Marshmallow frosting

      Imagine the delicious, gooey taste of marshmallows in a giant bowl — that’s marshmallow frosting. This icing is thick, producing clouds of billowy white frosting.

        Due to its density, marshmallow frosting is especially great for topping cupcakes and using in layer cakes, because it holds its shape very well. With only five easy-to-find ingredients and a mere seven steps, this frosting is perfect for whipping up quickly while your cakes cool. Marshmallow frosting is also very glossy when its done, meaning it is a perfect topping to show off a little bit! Additionally, more adventurous bakers can use a kitchen torch to slightly brown the marshmallow frosting, giving it a nice, toasted s’mores taste. Please find the full recipe here.

        4. Chocolate cream cheese frosting

        When it comes to decadent frostings, nothing beats chocolate cream cheese icing. It is rich, dense, and fudgy enough for even the most avid chocoholics.

          Best of all, this recipe only has two steps: blend the ingredients together and chill the frosting for 30 minutes. It doesn’t get much easier than that! Once the frosting is chilling in the refrigerator, you can prepare your cakes and have everything ready in a very short time. With ingredients like whole milk and a whopping 3 cups of confectioner’s sugar, you can be sure that this delicious frosting will be a hit on any cake you make. This frosting complements vanilla and chocolate cakes best. Find the full recipe and details here.

          8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

          We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

          On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

          Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

          1. Smart Door Locks

          A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

          2. Smart Kitchen Tools

          Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

          3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

          If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

          4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

          These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

          5. Nest Thermostat

          This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

          7. Google Chromecast Ultra

          Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.
