Icing

Anita’s Frankenfrosting

(sweethopecookies.com)

This is THE icing I use for decorating cookies; it is delicious PLUS it has amazing versatility for doing just about everything I want to do with icing. It is made by making two separate icings and combining them. I know… WEIRD, but true!

I would suggest making ½ of each recipe. You will have plenty!! ALWAYS store in a container with a tight lid… This icing freezes very well. Thaw it for several hours before using.

Put this icing in a large bowl and make the glaze icing.
