Can you do that? I tried the wilton canned frosting, but it was so hard that even after adding a bunch of water, I couldn't get it through the tips. What about regular canned frosting on the baking aisle? It wouldn't be for a cake - just wanted to practice using different tips and making roses and leaves and such. Do you think it would work?
I think it would be too soft.
I think tiggy's right ... it would be too soft. Remember, it's designed to spread, not to make roses.
You might try adding some p.sugar to make it stiffer just for practice.
But making a batch from scratch doesnt' take too long and the right recipe can last for days on the counter and practically forever in the 'frig or freezer.
I agree. I tried that and it was way too soft to do anything with! unless I froze it and id get maybe 1 flower with would eventually turn too soft as well. but making your own buttercream takes about 5 minutes and can last for days in the fridge. thats what i did. every night id sit down with it and just pipe while in front of the tv lol.
