A good quick and easy way to make icing is to mix powdered sugar and whipped cream together. If it gets too thick than add more whipped cream if its not thick enough then add more powdered sugar

Here's how to make smoothly textured butter cream icing: You will need the following ingredients – four eggs, half a cup sugar, half a cup corn syrup, two and a half cubed sticks of butter.

Whip eggs in a bowl until they become fluffy. Boil sugar and corn syrup in a saucepan, and add it slowly to the eggs. Add the butter, a small amount at a time. Whip the mixture until it attains a creamy consistency. Coat the cake with a small quantity of this frosting. Let the cake remain untouched for at least half an hour, until the frosting dries. Then apply most of the remaining icing in an even manner all over and on the sides of the cake. Keep applying until you reach the wanted level of icing. Slice the cake into pieces and serve.

One method of making an un-cooked icing is to use powdered sugar. Pour a good amount of powdered sugar into a bowl and add a pat of room temp butter (about a tablespoon), a small amount of milk (a few tablespoons at a time) and a dash of vanilla. Use the mixer on low to blend. If the icing is too thin, add more sugar...too thick, add more milk. I have no exact measurements, I'm one of those "by sight cooks". Hope this is somewhat helpful to you.

You could mix icing sugar with water, but don't add to much water at once because you will find that the icing will be too runny.
