CAKE DECORATING ICING and FROSTING
Tomatoe - tomato is how I think about icing and frosting. My mom got me started with the piping bag in my early years. She gave me her original Crisco-cream, not buttercream, recipe. With Guam smack dab in the tropics, buttercream made with real butter simply would not hold up in the heat of the island. However, mom's recipe was difficult to spread easily over the cake. I changed it up a bit, but at its foundation, is what I learned from my mom. A Taste of Guam has one recipe for piped decorations and one recipe to spread on the cake.
