Frosting Recipe

Covering cakes with powdered sugar or other materials was introduced in the 17th century.

The icing was applied to the cake then hardened in the oven. The earliest attestation of the verb ‘to ice’ in this sense seems to date from around 1600, and the noun ‘icing’ from 1683.

‘Frosting’ was first attested in 1750.
