LOOKING for: Decorative Icing recipe with less sugar

lan_khuuMay 31, 2002

I have taken cake decoration class, but I can't apply

what I have learned to make cake for my family because

the cake tastes too sweety for them with icing.

Does any body know a cake decorating icing recipe to make

icing less sweety? either with less sugar or subtibute

the sugar with some thing else? My icing recipe has sugar

amount twice the amount of the butter/vegetable shortening

and I am looking some thing with much less sugar than butter/shortening

I would appreciate your help.

I don't have a copy of the recipe on hand, but there should be a recipe for buttercream frosting on Crisco's website. In my opinion, it's not as sweet as the frosting they have at most bakeries. I would think you could add food coloring to it if you wanted.
