A number of years ago I started using this Buttercream Icing recipe.
As you can see, it’s used a lot. I use it on cakes and cookies and sometimes other random things. It’s my go to.
Alyse asked for a chocolate cake with Oreos and horses.
I was running really short on time, so I cheated a little and used 2 chocolate cake mixes. One was a 12inch round cake and the other was 10inch.
I divided the icing into 3 bowls. I left one white and then used food coloring to make a bowl of pink icing and a bowl of light green to match the decorations.
I cut each cake to make it 2 layers and to add the Oreo filling.
Breeley was happy to help me crunch up the Oreos and spread the icing.
Soon the cake was put back together and iced. I used the left over white icing to add some polka dots to match the decorations and add on the trim. My recipe was just enough. I kinda felt like adding the last bit of trim was a miracle because I really thought I was going to run out, but I made it work! I got the sparkly 9 at Hobby Lobby and borrowed 3 of Alyse’s Bryer Stablemates. I was pretty happy with how it turned out. I’m not a professional, but I try my best.
Here’s the Buttercream Icing recipe. Let me know if you use it! It’s really so so good!
