Store bought frosting *gasp* I know. But I was wondering because I'm feeling a bit lazy this week (really not looking forward to powdered sugar all over my kitchen.) I wanted to know if I could use the betty crocker/duncan hines chocolate frosting under fondant? It's a crowd favorite so I figured why not. Will I have trouble with the fondant over it?
You can, i use it all the time as the kids really love it!!! The only thing is, its quite tricky to work with, sticky almost ( the betty crocker that is ) i always add a little bit of boiling water which thins it out nicely but not too much, just so its easier to spread. And then once i frost my cake/cupcakes, i leave it for a few hours to firm up, then put the fondant on Ive never had a problem doing this
thanks. I think I am definitely going to use it this time.
If you like the ease of store-bought frosting, have you tried the buttercream from Sam's? It works very well and would be a lot cheaper (about $32 for 28 lbs) in the long run than those small containers of Betty Crocker or whatever, and a lot more useful. Just a thought
