This recipe is one passed down by a great Aunt it was the first title I thought of for my cookbook. My mother makes the best icing ever. I can never match it although I try she even uses margarine ... I know...I know!

Very interesting....adding Hot Water. I will definately give them a try. Thank you for sharing this family recipe. I just found an awesome Butter-Cream Icing recipe from Peggy Weaver....it was delicious!!! YUM here is the link http://whatscookingamerica.net/PegW/ButtercreamIcing.htm

I think, I'd rename them, if i wanted to share the recipe with my friends and relatives. But what an interesting recipe! I think, I'll try them some time, next year. Maybe January.

LOL those are awesome! :) I'm going to make these the featured recipe on our home page this week. Too funny! :) Let me look into your video HTML - see why it's not processing. :) The video should be there automatically. Thanks for posting.
