But first: My sister taught me the secret to turning regular grocery store frosting into decorating frosting. All you need to do dump all the icing into a mixing bowl and slowly stir in powdered sugar until it stiffens up slightly by forming peeks. About a 2/3 cup per a regular 16-ounce container of frosting.
We spent a lot of time touring the city last week, but this domestic activity was one of my favorites.
