Copycat Classic Bakery White Frosting Recipe — 16 Comments

  1. Sheryl- this is amazing. I love doing little (and big) girl tea parties. I would love to do this one sometime ? Did you make the cake stands and all the background stuff? Are the flowers real?

    • Hi Claudette, Since there is nothing in the frosting that is perishable, it can be left out on the counter in an airtight container for several days. This frosting is amazing it keeps its integrity really well.

  2. I would be using this to frost a birthday cake (smooth), then drawing lines across with chocolate ganache (then making chevron stripes by pulling a knife across the chocolate lines). Is this an icing that I could use “flat” on a cake, and does it sort of harden? (I don’t want something that stays soft and fluffy). Thanks!

    • Hi Vicki, After the cake is frosted, leave it uncovered. The frosting should harden or have a hardened crust. I’m not sure if it will be as hard as you want it though. I will say the frosting does harden enough on cookies so they can be stacked.

  3. Thanks so much ….finally what I was looking for (after spending a million dollars on butter that was unnecessary for the flavor and consistency I was looking for …. thanks a bunch 5 stars

  4. Superb frosting that holds up… even in hot weather! I moved to the Philippines 8 years ago. My wife and I will often make cakes or cupcakes for birthdays. Your frosting recipe is the only recipe that does not run. During the spring and summer months on sunny days it is 90 to 95 degrees. Food coloring also does not separate as buttercream frosting does. The shortening we use is a Philippines brand made from coconut oil and hydrogenated palm stern. Thank you for the recipe.
