lots, i filled and crumb coated a 8inch square, could easily do the same again, maybe even an extra cake.

wow when i read the ingredients it didn't seem like it would make that much, but boy is the powered whipping cream expensive, i had to buy the store brand hoped it works the same, Oh yea i bought a dummy cake and am going to play with it all next week, going to think of different things to put on might take a couple weeks but it will be fun
thanks for answering

I have recently switched to her recipe and like it better than what I was using (even though I am not a big fan of any buttercream) You can add different flavorings or in place of the water, use flavored coffee creamers

I just used indydebi's icing recipe for the first time today. All I can say is "WOW"! The taste is great and it smooths really nicely. Thanks Indydebi!

I made it the first time a couple of weeks ago, I iced over 90 mini cupcakes with 1 batch! I love love love the taste of it! I was using a wilton recipe I think, and everyone loves hers so much better! Ive made it several different flavors as well, and it works great with every one of them!

I made it yesterday for the first time (for my semi disastrous bowling cake), and I just loved it. Great to work with, and everyone liked the taste! Thank god that cake tasted so good, people were able to forget how flawed it was.
Thanks to indydebi for sharing!

I found IndyDebi's recipe last summer when I was making cakes for an outside birthday (100+ every day). I did white and chocolate and everyone loved it. I don't know if it is the Dream Whip, but I almost always add it to my frosting now. If heat isn't a factor, I use half butter and half shortening ... just because I like butter in my buttercream. icon_smile.gif

I am doing an outside wedding in a couple of weeks and will be using her all shortening recipe, but I know it is going to taste great and hopefully won't melt before they cut the cake. They are predicting mid to high 90's ... and very high humidity. If anything will work, it will be IndyDebi's recipe!

Hi All for some reason i though it took alot of the dream whip, da two tablespoons so i bought 4 boxes, did buy the store brand. and that's why i asked all of you how much it yielded, i read the recipe and thought it said 2 tbs of con sugar and i'm thing what does this dream whip blow up. Then i came in to my puter room to write it down, still read it wrong, then got closer to the screen and ohhhh 2lbs. it came out really good, i like the taste better in the medium , everybody loved it, i posted in my last post and still trying to post the pics,

Is this recipe on cake central? I'm making outdoor wedding cake in July! Very hot with high humidity here in Kentucky. Would love to try this recipe!

I love it too! Everyone raves about how great it tastes. Only problem I had was adding color. It did not want to blend. I used Wilton coloring (only thing I can find around here without driving 40 miles to Memphis). I thought maybe it was the Dream Whip, maybe it's the Wilton.

I tried the recipe this weekend as well and really liked it. I'm also doing an outdoor wedding for a family member at the end of May. What do you add to it to make chocolate buttercream?
