I am not a fan of thick frostings but hub is. I don't know the name of the frosting he likes just that its the thick sugar kind they use on bday cakes to make flowers and such. He does not like the whipped cream light and airy frosting. I have heard this is a crisco frosting or buttercream but i don't know. His bday is coming soon and i plan on making an orange cake and need a recipe for this sugary mess that he likes : ) If you don't want to post the recipe you can just tell me what its called and i can find it.

The basic buttercream we make around here is one stick of softened butter to one pound of powdered sugar, maybe a splash of milk to get it started.

RE: RECIPE: frosting??

My mom rationed how much sugar we were allowed!
For the top only of a 9 x 13 cake we used:

3 Tbsp. butter, creamed fluffy
1 Tbsp. milk
1 scant tsp. flavoring
2 C. pd. sugar

With mixer running add remaining ingredients to creamed butter and beat fluffy.
If too stiff to spread add extra tsp. of milk.

Add 2-3 Tbsp. cocoa for chocolate frosting.
