I have to second this one - its a nice tasting icing, cheaper than most I've seen, and when you have a special order they make it up then versus sending you a tub that has sat around for months.

Dixie is a real Sweetheart! I've taken classes from her and she can do anything in buttercream. She also sells chefmaster liqua gel colors and they are the bestcolors I have ever used. It takes very little and you can get red or black instantly, no letting it set to intensify. I've also seen her kitchen where she makes the icing and it is spotless.

I second everything tiggy has said! I feel fortunate to be in the same city as Dixie, so I can run and get icing almost any time. No shipping! I use her original almond/vanilla and her chocolate icings. Yummy!

Sams Club will sell you icing. I've never used it myself.

Just a different opinion here....
I got Dixie's sample pack and while I loved her deep red and black colors of bc, I didnt care for the taste.
Didn't care too much for the other stuff she sent as well.

I love the lighter stuff, like from Sam's club and/or Costco....yum yum.

But her sample pack is a great deal if your wanting to try it outicon_wink.gif
Yes, she is a sweetheart!!!

I used it, it was tasty and piped well, but isn't much different than stiff BC IMO. Maybe if it really crusts you can stack them, but I prefer fondant and RI...

I don't use her cookie icing, as I tend to stick with what I'm used to, and I'm used to a particular glace icing. But I love her cake icing because it isn't super sweet, doesn't leave a greasy aftertaste, and has a long shelf life. She made a name for herself with this icing when she decorated cakes, and I'm hooked on it!
