I created this stub because I saw a broken link. I'm happy for it to merge with icing; I don't know what else there is to say about buttercream. Just keep that information aflowing. 17:09, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

Needs more info[edit]

There's more to say about buttercream for sure, this article doesn't even list the major types much less what the differences are. the pineapple 05:32, 9 May 2006 (UTC)

There we go, how's that for something to say about buttercream? the pineapple 06:47, 9 May 2006 (UTC)

Clarification between icing and frosting; source of name[edit]

According to my colleague frosting and icing are two completely separate words and icing should be paired with Royal icing instead. —Preceding unsigned comment added by MwattsCIA (talkcontribs) 17:58, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

I have always heard that they were the same thing. What I'm curious about is, where did the name come from? Were all the first icings white and meant to imitate the look of something covered in actual frost or ice? That is what I was looking to find out. If anybody knows, I hope they will please share it.

An alternative name is 'icening' which sounds like a derivation by adding 'ening' e.g. thickening, darkening but from a noun instead. So it may indeed mean to "make into ice" Senrabyar (talk) 01:01, 13 November 2014 (UTC)
