Take four tablespoonfuls of water, and beat into it enough XXXX sugar to make it the consistency of thick cream. Add to it one cupful of broken nut meats and spread on the cake. If the icing is too thin and runs off, add a little more sugar, and if too stiff to spread well, add a little more water. The coated nuts have a better effect when
the icing is made with water than with milk or cream.
Make over the Nut Icing recipe, substituting candied fruits for the nuts.
This icing is used with metal tubes for decorating cakes. The art can be quickly and easily mastered. Take the whites of two eggs, and beat into them enough XXXX confectionery sugar to make it stiff enough to hold its shape. The
only difficult part about making this icing is the beating. It should be beaten until light and creamy. The amount of sugar needed will vary greatly, according to the size of the eggs used. The icing is not desirable for covering cakes, as it becomes very hard. It is good only for decorating. Metal icing tubes can be purchased at any good hardware store.
One-thirds cupful butter
Two tablespoonfuls cocoa
One and one-half cupfuls confectioners’ sugar
