I just had a request to switch the cake/icing to organic--does anyone have any experience with some good organic mixes/recipes and do they hold the same way? Will the icing perform as if it were "regular" ingredients?

In our experience there is no difference between organic and non-organic ingredients for cake and buttercream, the only real difference is the organic manufacturer has a piece of paper that says their stuff is organic and can now charge a premium for their products.

I bake organically sometimes, and the organic ingredients work just fine in all my recipes. The only tricky part is finding organic powdered sugar, if that's the type of icing you're making. I couldn't find it anywhere locally & had to special order it.

I do have an organic market down the road, and Harris Teeter sells powdered sugar as well. The only ingredients I can't get are things like Oil, shortening etc.
