This is a very good stable and tempature proven icing. It crusts very well, makes great flowers and decorations, colors very well and tastes great. It is a true bakery grade buttercream icing. I recommend using the exact ingredients for best results. The ingredients are all commercial bakery grade and provide wonderful results.
