To prepare this often butter is mixed with icing sugar and pasteurized egg white is also included to make the frosting stay intact when it is piped on to the cakes or cupcakes.
  • Fondant: this is a mixture of sugar, gelatine, and glycerine that gives it dough-like consistency. Sine fondant saves the cake from falling apart and also doesn’t melt away in humidity, unlike frosting, this is becoming very popular type of icing to decorate the cakes and cupcakes.
  • Buttercream: this icing type is meant for cakes or cupcakes that are meant for immediate consumption. The reason behind this is that this icing type is made by thoroughly mixing butter with milk, icing sugar, and vanilla essence till it gains an icing type consistency and the buttercream tends to melt as soon as it is out of the refrigerator.
