I saw some of it a Smart & Final the otherday. Seemed relatively inexpensive. But what is it really? What do you use it for? Can you ice a cake with it?

Yes, you can ice a cake with it! It won't make very good roses though or string work. I love it and it's just about all I use anymore.
You should get some and try it, let it thaw if it's frozen then whip it to a thick spreading consistency. It smooths beautifuly with a very hot blade. I do find though that the color doesn't stay mixed in too well if you are holding the piping bag for too long of a period of time as the icing breaks down.

I've used it also. It's a whipped topping icing. I've used both the chocolate and vanilla and it pipes borders well, and it's tasty. But like jscakes said, it gets soft with the warmth of your hand so you need to go quickly.

I use the Pastry Pride as often as I can. It works best to put a glass bowl in the freezer about 30 minutes before you whip it. It whips faster and holds better. I haven't been able to find the chocolate yet, but I love the vanilla.

I'm not sure what the Frostin Pride is. I have never seen that here. Where do you get it at? I buy the Pastry Pride at a cake supply shop that I go to in Houston.

Hello ladies, I have used both Pastry Pride and Frostin Pride and really prefer Frostin Pride because it tends to be a little thicker and easier to put on a cake. For some reason pastry pride is thinner. Frostin Pride also has more of a vanilla taste to it than Pastry Pride. They're both very good, but I do prefer Frostin Pride. I purchase it at my local Smart & Final.
