Just wondering how long I can keep this icing and still have it be ok for a cake? I don't use butter in mine, just hi ratio shortening.

I did a wedding cake about 2 weeks ago and used SugarShacks icing and had some left over. I used the icing last night to cover a cake. I had some of the icing (just as a precaution icon_razz.gif ) and it still tasted great. I did notice that there were some crusty pieces but I am thinking that is just becuase I didn't have it covered well enough and when I mixed it dry pieces from the side of the bowl were incorporated into the batch of icing. I just had mind on the counter covered with saran wrap. There are no dairy products so it should stay good for a while. thumbs_up.gif

I have frozen, thawed, and refrozen it numerous times. I just fill a bowl and rewhip to get the air that appeared from it being frozen. Works as good as a fresh batch.

4 1/2 cups powdered hi ratio shortening
4 cups powdered sugar
12-16 tab coffee creamer mixture
4 tab flavoring
3 teas salt

I mix 1 cup of coffee creamer with 1 cup of boiling water. I add salt to cut some sweetness, but you don't have to.

Put the shortening, flavoring and hot coffee creamer mixture and salt if added in a bowl and mix on low speed until smooth and combined. I just add the powdered sugar steadily all at one time. Once combined turn up to 6 or med high speed and mix for about 9 minutes or until it looks nice and smooth.

I would start with the 12 tab of creamer and you can always add more right before you turn up the mixer speed if it is too thick.

Sorry it took so long, I've been busy today. They are actually making me work at my job icon_cry.gif
