it worked! thumbs_up.gif
I was trying out my new mini tasty fill pan from Wilton and baked a small banana cake. I had leftover buttercream so I decided to experiment. I added about 1 tablespoon of the banana pudding mix (dry) to one cup of buttercream (I use the wilton recipe with half crisco and half butter). It was quite tasty, banana flavor without the alcohol flavor you can get from extracts. I'm sure you could adjust the intensity by adding more mix. It also seemed to make the buttercream more fluffy, if that makes any sense. icon_lol.gif

Yes you can and that's the ONLY way you're going to get me to eat jello.

I hate jello and my 10 month old granddaughter does as well. My daughter gave her a bite the other night and she gagged. Tried to get her to take another bit and she quivered and shook her head icon_lol.gif Now when she sees my daughter (she loves the stuff) eating jello she just starts shaking her head NO...love that she hates it as much as I do. icon_lol.gif

That's funny icon_lol.gif My 17 year old son will not touch a hot dog. He says "do you know what they put in those things?" I've got to tell him what you said about the jello.
