A cake supply store I was just at has a baggie of a white powder called Fluffy Delight made by Standlees, it is $5.99 for 8 oz. You just add a couple tablespoons to a batch of buttercream. The clerk said it makes her shortening based buttercream taste less greasy and grainy. Their website says it improves the consistency and is easier to spread. Has anyone used it? I haven't read a word about it on CC so am wondering about it. Thanks
You can buy a prime Black Angus beef brisket for less. That stuff is expensive. Never heard of it.
Or you can buy high-ratio shortening for $7.99 for 3 lbs.=48 ozs. from f o n d a n t s o u r c e . com and many other suppliers and get the same results. And I've never heard of it either.
Dang. I doubt I would even want to eat something called 'fluffy delight'.
sounds kinda like glorified dream whip (like you'd use in indydebis recipe)
what is actually in it?
it is pricey (although in theory, would last a while), but if your feeling flush, maybe it will make a difference?
Yeah, If it was a little cheaper I may have bought it just to check it out. Meringue powder works out to be about a dollar an oz, so this is cheaper. The 8 oz bag would make a lot of frosting since there were a lot of tablespoons in it cause it is a very light and fluffy powder. I was wondering if it was a non-Wilton meringue powder but then figured it would be called that, if that is what it was. I was curious since I hadn't heard of it and I do spend too much time loitering on CC.
No, it wouldn't be a meringue powder. I don't use Wilton brand meringue powder, I use CK brand and it's still called meringue powder.
My guess would be that it's a blend of emulsifiers. That's basically what Dream Whip is (well, plus thickeners, when you blend it with milk, it emulsifies and thickens it, causing it be able to whip like heavy cream).
The label at the cake place in MN I was at didn't say the ingred. Standlee that carries (makes it?) it is a cake, candy, cookie supply place in Chula Vista, CA. I can't quite make out the ingred. on the photo on their website. I have emailed them asking for the ingred.
The ingredients are corn starch, dextrose, polysorbate60. This means nothing to me though.....
cornstarch - thickener
dextrose - sugar
polysorbate60 - an emulsifier
it is probably like dream whip light
