This recipe for THE BEST ICING EVER was originally published in January 2013. Three years later it is still the BEST ICING EVER and I thought it deserved new pictures and a face lift. ENJOY!

I thought a lot before naming this icing THE BEST ICING – EVER, but I just couldn’t come up with any name that could describe it better. I love this icing and it is the best icing – ever! It will take an ordinary cake to over-the-top yummy and is especially great when combined with chocolate or red velvet cake. This icing isn’t sugary sweet, it is delicious all by itself and it will turn any cake into the best cake ever! This is my mom Susie’s recipe, so I take zero credit for it. If you try two recipes on this site and never look back, let it be this and her Creamy Chicken Soup. She is the master and I’m so lucky she’s my mom!

Back in 2013, I took these process shots. I’m not saying I”m a photo master or anything now…but man what was I thinking with those pictures!!! This is why this post needed an update. I just had to do this BEST ICING EVER justice. It deserves to be seen! I shudder as I look at the pic below…don’t judge!

Yikes. So…needless to say, people looked over this recipe and it hasn’t gotten the love it deserves. You will want to lick the bowl clean. Make a double batch so that you’ll actually have some leftover to ice those red velvet cupcakes!
