I am about to try making Sugarshack's icing for the first time in a couple days and the youtube video looks like it is not very "stiff". . .is this icing useable for making buttercream roses etc or is it just best for filling and covering a cake?

Also, is the powdered coffee creamer just equal portions to water? And is the creamer just "regular" flavor. I am not a coffee drinker so I don't know much about the creamers. . LOL!

Thanks so much!!!

You can make it any consistency you like, so of course you'll make it pretty stiff for roses. Mix the powdered creamer in equal parts with near boiling water to dissolve it. The powdered creamer is the plain, unflavored creamer for basic buttercream.

Hello, Sugar Shack...question, where do you get the wedding cake flavor liquid you use? I saw it in your video, and Ive heard you talk about it...

Thanks bunches...

Sharon recommends Wedding Bouquet, but be aware that not everyone likes it! See this thread:

If you thicken it up with more powdered sugar, it'll be stiff enough to make roses.
