This is a very versatile and easy icing which can be used as a filling, a coating and for simple piping. The only ingredients are softened unsalted butter and sifted icing sugar, with added flavourings (such as vanilla, almond, peppermint, lemon juice and rind, or flower water) and colourings. You can also mix the ingredients together in a food processor.
