I was inspired in NYC by this cupcake place and this cupcake place. So yesterday me and my three girls hit up the cake shop to buy all the necessary things to make "fancy cupcakes". I decided to dig up this old recipe for the best frosting EVER.
I took a cake decorating class about 10 years ago ~ the best thing about this class was getting this recipe. I haven't made it in years, but I decided to make it last night and let me tell you - it is incredible. You must try!!! A few of the ingredients may be hard to find, but if you have a cake supply store nearby, they should carry the white margarine and the almond emulsion....
