Those from Iowa... Laritas cookies!?! - Page 2

post #16 of 24
Hi, just a question for vickymacd: what is the difference for you between icing and frosting. I use those terms interchangeably, but I'm ready to learn. Thanx! icon_biggrin.gif

sorry so long, site was down.

Icing to me is like a drizzle. Or what I would put on cookies. Then it dries smooth. Icing is what I drizzle on a bundt cake.

Frosting is the fluffy stuff. Put on cupcakes, cakes (whether smoothing it or not).

Maybe that's why I was so confused! Although it doesn't take much to confuse me!

Thanks for the explanation. I'd never thought about the difference, but obviously it's important. From your description, I guess I only do frosting, because I only do cakes that later get decorated. You don't seem at all confused to me! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif I think I was the one who was confused.

We get them shipped to TX and the icing does smoosh a little bit, however they keep the form of whatever shape/design she had intended. I am SOOOO excited to get the recipe! icon_smile.gif **my husband is making fun of me....**

Okay, so I'm thinking the Larita's recipe that I posted was flawed!!!! I tried making it and although the taste was definitely Larita's the consistency was AWFUL!!!!! I'm not sure, but I'm guessing, that maybe the 2 lbs of powdered sugar should've been 2 BAGS (4 lbs)? I'm gonna try that this next weekend (after my stupid surgery!) to see if that's better. The consistency actually made me gag....way too runny!

My apologies!

I think it's the water, maybe not 1 cup just 1 tbs or even 2? Seems like a lot of water for that small of a recipe, but if I get a chance to play with it this week i'll try it out! The key ingredients are the 2tsp van 1 tsp almond icon_smile.gif hehe woohoo! Can't wait!

I can't help but wonder if she wouldn't want her recipe posted.
