Has anyone ever used the Wilton Whipped Frosting Mix, all you do is whip it with ice water. I was wondering what the flavor and consistency were like. If you did use it can it be flavored.
The consistency is like whipped cream and it has a light marshmallow flavoring and it's not real sweet. I have never added flavoring the only thing that I have found is that it does set and once it does you can't try to smooth it or else it messes up. It kinda gets gummy.
I use this quite a bit. I love the light texture of it with light flavored cakes like lemon or key lime. I have put flavorings in it, but only a little bit and it worked qutie well. It works well as a frosting but I don't recommend it for decorations. It does set up quickly but I have never found this to be a problem. I normally use it on cakes that I do not plan to heavily decorate because of the airy texture it has. But overall, I like it for a change up.
I used the Wilton Whipped Icing for my Cinco de Mayo cupcakes, I added a little lime juice to part for Margarita cupcakes and Khalus to part for the Khalua cupcakes. I was great for the cupcakes, very light and had a great taste. I would be somewhat afraid to use it on a cake because it was so soft but piped great on cupcakes.
