Yes, yes I know...it's cake blasphemy. But I need to find a good store bought white crusting buttercream. I am travelling to Philly to go to my Bro-in-law's 40th surprise party next month. My sister wants me to make a cake, but the problem is that we won't get into town until 11pm Friday, and the party is at 5pm on Saturday. So I need to cut corners somewhere to save time and not make a huge mess at her house on the day of the party. That's my excuse! Otherwise, I always make my own buttercream.
ANYWAYS.....does anyone have and recommendations? Wilton? CK?
Sorry, no idea about store bought icing. But I was wondering...are you driving or flying? If you're driving, you could make and bring your icing if you use SugarShack's or IndyDebi's as they don't need to be refrigerated. I will be driving to Florida at the end of the year and promised a cake for a friend so I'm bringing the cake, icing and anything else I need as there won't be a place for me to make them.
I'm flying, so unless I want to be accosted by homeland security, I probably shouldn't bring my own. lol!
LOL - no I guess that wouldn't be a good idea. Was just a thought.
Too bad you can't ship the icing ahead to be there when you arrived. I had a friend ship the tiers (un-iced) of a fruitcake she was using in a tiered cake as well as her fondant and such and did it all when she arrived. I think Fedex was able to get it there in one piece.
I'll be interested to see what icing brands people suggest. It's always good to have something in ones back pocket.
