Google is the best way to search - just type in what you are looking for then "cake central" and you will most likely get what you are seeking HTH

Here is the link to her recipe - there is a one cup to one cup ratio, so for your situation it seems that you would need 12 T powder to 12 T hot water. HTH

She says there 1 cup of hot water and 1 cup of powdered coffee creamer (1:1 ratio). She also says you can store the leftover in the fridge just warm it up before you use it.

Hi again.... just finished making the recipe for the 6 qt. mixer.... please read this... it will be helpful to all...

I sent her this email after I was done:



well let me start by saying this.... I will nerver ever doubt anything you say ever again.... icon_biggrin.gif

When I got your email about the Qty's for the 6 qt. mixer... as I looked at everything in my "mis en place"... I was like.... there is NO WAY all that will fit into this mixer... but I went on....
I added the HR Short.... weddng b. flvr.. creamer mix... so far so good.... then I added half of the PS.... it was soooo much.. I said... it's NOT going to work...
but again... I said... ON WITH IT DALIS!
I covered the mixer with a towel as you do... mixed... then looked...
AAAhhhhhh very nicely incorporated.... ok... ok.. so I see... she was right... so far....
Then again... I say... 12 1/4 cups of PS MORE??? nah that will for sure NOT HAPPEN...
I added the PS... it was higher than the mixing drum.... I doubted again....
but... covered with the towel... mixed....
and the rest is history....

I am forever grateful to you for this!!!! it worked perfectly....


I will share this with every person out there that says they're batch didn't come out as it should've....

Moral of the Story: DO NOT... I repeat.. DO NOT change/sub anything in her recipe... if you do it EXACTLY as she has it.... YOU will LOVE IT!!!

I do love her recipe. Though I sub half hi ratio for butter. But it's the best icing to work with!

dalis4joe, this is good to know! Thanks for the info!

For those who have tried her recipe, what did you use for your flavorings? Sugarshack says she uses the flavoring she buys specifically for wedding cakes. Can we just use vanilla and butter flavorings?

akgirl10, how well does the butter work with this recipe? Does it make it taste better? I prefer some butter in my "Butter"cream if I'm not making a white wedding cake...

I use different flavorings all of the time. I like 1/2 vanilla and 1/2 almond but what I really love is the flavored coffee the moment my favorite is the Italian sweet cream. I have about 6 containers of powdered flavored coffee creamer that my husband loves to comment on but I really like trying the different ones.

I just got the hazlenut one... can't wait to try it... I would think can chage the flavor as you wish, but keep it at the same amount I guess...

But.... the wedding bouquet tastes so so so so so good!!! I always used the wilton recipe with half butter half shortening... but I couldn't stand the fact that for wedding cakes specially... my white BC.... wasn't white.... so I tried the White Wedding Wilton BC recipe... but didn't like the taste very much... so I kinda settled with Ivory colored BC....

But after trying this one.... I'm sold
It has absolutely NO AIR... goes on so smooth and then after you do the viva method (she has 3 steps for the viva method) it's like looking at a fondant covered cake.... very very good.... I get a few orders where they want BC and no fondant and this works great for that... and the key to flawless fondant is flawless buttercream on uyour cake... this is for sure the best I have seen/tired (ands I have tried and tried and tried many) hehehe...
