I just want to say that this lady is da "BOMB ".
I just made her recipe for buttercream icing and this stuff is off the hook. If you've never tried it, please do, it's delicious. I'm a fan. Much much better than WIlton's. Sorry Wilton fans. Thanks Indydebi for sharing such a wonderful recipe.

I agree - it IS delicious! It's the only buttercream recipe that I use now.

I agree...I even took it to class last week and got RAVE reviews from it. Even from my instructor!

I first used it last week and it was great...easy and inexpensive to make. Won't even attempt to try any other buttercream.

The only thing that I do differently is sometimes I use the butter flavored Crisco, and sometimes I do use 1/2 butter 1/2 crisco.

I have been using it for the last year...it is... that great!!!! I did find that I can put store brand powder whipped top in it...I always double the batch and use half dream whip and half store brand....it cuts my cost down some. Just thought I would share.

I too use Indydebi's bc icing, it taste really good. I add a teaspoon of butter flavor to it, I can eat it by the spoonful. I also add 6-8 oz of melted white chocolate if I need a white bc or milk chcoclate for are brown chcoclate. It is sooo good. Thanks Indydebi for sharing your wonderful recipe.

I've been planning on trying this recipe. Just wondering if anyone has made it by using hi ratio shortening instead of Crisco? I normally use the hi ratio so I was just curious.

What do you think is the main difference...taste, performance, etc. in this icing? How does it vary from other bc's using shortening or shortening and butter? The main difference I see is the Dream Whip.... Does it pipe well? Flowers, borders, etc. ?

The taste is fabulous and it does not leave that greezy tongue feeling like you have been eating sweaters...lol
I use it for all flowers, borders and well everything!! It smooths out crusts to be flawless with the help of viva paper towel. All of my cakes are made with it.

I also only use Indydebi's recipe for BC. It tastes great without a greasy feel in your mouth and it crusts perfectly! I get many, many compliments from this recipe. Try it, you won't be sorry.

KUDOS to Indydebi! icon_lol.gifthumbs_up.gif

Sounds yummy, cant wait to try it. However I was wondering since it has milk in it does it have to be refridgerated? TIA

I was wondering also about it be refrigerated. Also, is it okay for the cake to sit out for very long with milk in the icing. Just looking at the 5 hours/high humidity.

I think it was stated that it can sit out... Most of the time they say with that much sugar it's ok. Maybe someone else can comment....

I think the dream whip adds a creamy smooth flavor to it. I use it to pipe borders, roses and flowers. It is an icing that will crust. It's not as sweet to me as wilton's buttercream. It's almost like a whipped icing. If you've never tried it, make it. It's not that expensive to make. I'm not speaking for Indydebi but I think I read somewhere that she will leave her icing out for about 2 wks. (in an air tight container). If I'm wrong, will someone correct me. I leave mine out. I haven't had any problems with it.

Is the new non-trans fat crisco still working ok for this recipe?

CAKESABC Posted 24 Oct 2008 , 3:09pm

The Dream Whip adds a wonderful taste to the buttercream and it does crust nicely.

I use the new Crisco with this recipe, and I have never had a problem with it.

I have had a hard time finding the Dream Whip. What does it look like so I will know what I am looking for? I called myself looking very intently yesterday when I was at the grocery store and could never find it!

Thanks!

Does it have to be refrigerated?

Can you substitute wilton whipped icing mix for the dream whip?

You can find the Dream Whip in the baking isle. It does not have to be refridgerated, store in a air tight container on the counter. I use it all the time after it has sat out for a week or so. but it usually doesn't last that long around here. You should try it.

I tried it for one I made last night and it was wonderful!!!! I finally found the Dream Whip beside the jello. Thanks!

How much does this recipe make? cup wise?

Just made this recipe and it is a little gritty - tastes fabulous though.

I used water instead of milk (just habit!) and then I used a store brand whipped "dream whip".

Would those two substitutions be the culprit?

I'm going to use it for a little cake we have for the family today so I'll see how great it is to work with.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I used the Kraft Dream Whip and milk and it wasn't gritty for me. I blended it for a while and I actually used more milk than called for. It did fine!! Not gritty at all!!
