When deciding what would be a great topping for thawed frozen fruit, I stumbled across the idea of a buttercream topping. I had confectioners sugar and vanilla and decided I could make a buttercream topping for just a touch of sweetness to the otherwise bitter thawed frozen fruit. As I followed the recipe for the buttercream, I realized there is a difference between buttercream frosting and buttercream icing.

There is also the icing which is thinner and glossier than frosting, that is also used as a glaze or for detailed decorating.

The following is a recipe for buttercream icing which is quick and simple way to top fruit for a delicious summer treat.
