I am all geared up to try IndyDebi's buttercream tonight, only to discover my husband's milk has turned bad icon_surprised.gif . Has anyone ever tried it with soy milk? I have silk organic unsweetend (plain). I guess it's either that or water I guess! My first frosting recipe with milk and its midnight and I don't have any milk..go figure, right? icon_lol.gif BTW this is just to try, I'm not making anything in particular.

I'd wait and make the recipe as written. icon_smile.gif

Most definitely wait as JanH suggested. My rule of thumb when trying a new recipe whether it is cake related or something else is to make as written and then make modifications if I want to try it again. If something goes wrong you can more easily pinpoint what and correct the next go around. It always amazes me when people rate/review a recipe as bad or not liking it and then list how they modified it.

You can substitute, it will be fine. Alot of people use water instead, but I suggest milk or half n half. If you aren't in a rush to make it for a cake, I would wait. Or if you just want to experiment, go for it!!! What do you have to loose, except some ingredients.

I definitely agree it will taste differently with milk vs water...but it's my only night off work this week and I am just too excited to wait. This is my first time getting to "play cakes" since we moved into our house 8 MONTHS ago!! And you never know, if I like it with water even better ~ I'm lactose intollerant! Off to the kitchen I go!
