Q&A: What is better for decorating Halloween sugar cookies: creamy frosting or butter frosting?

Question by phoenix_elements: What is better for decorating Halloween sugar cookies: creamy frosting or butter frosting?
Does creamy frosting or butter frosting have a better consistency for decorating? One web site I went to said that creamy frosting is better because the butter makes butter frosting melt when held in hands for a long time in the decorating bag. Other web sites suggested butter frosting for sugar cookies.

Go with a traditional confectionor’s sugar blend. It is stiff, and will hold up well when you decorate.

    If you plan on stacking the cookies or decorating them a few days before eating, butter-cream frosting would be a bad way to go, as it will melt and not set. Use the kind made from powder sugar with a little bit of water and vanilla instead.

    i suggest sugar, because sugar hardens better than butter. Butter may be smoothier for decoration, but you want it to last…right?
