Ok, so that is what hubby and I nicknamed it. So more like whipped nothing with a dusting of cocoa. Just add water, whip it up, and smooth it on. 


It's Wilton's "Chocolate whipped icing mix". Got a local coupon deal, so bought it to try it. It whipped up easy, no problem, smoothed on easy, quite soft so no really piping qualities I bet. Set up in the frig now to see what I got. Just an experiment. 

Anyone else play with this and have an opinion?

If it has "wilton" and "icing" in the name I have to think it's nasty...I doubt that you did anything wrong other than buy a wilton product that's supposed to be edible :/

Lol.... but it was FREE. The ONLY reason I actually got it. Boy, is it smooth and fun to play with, but tastes like nothing. I was just wondering if ANYONE out there actually thought it was good. 

But, I am one of those that actually think Costco cake is OK. Not a luscious dessert, but not one that I spit out either. I don't think I am super picky. But this stuff... I dunno. Not awful that I would scrape it off, but just...nothing. 

Is it just me?blush.png

The word you're going for is "bland".

I don't do bland in food, cakes, entertainment, the only time bland may be acceptable is a husband.......nah....not even then.  Nothing is better than bland.

Home bakers probably used this in 1960 and now that they are great-grandparents, they just keep using it and since kids (adult or little) like free cake, bland or not, they keep eating it.

It's been so long since I bought anything of that brand that I had forgotten why. I recently saw a mould that looked perfect for a cake I was planning. No matter what I did, I could not get the fondant out, apart from soaking it in hot water and I have a large collection of assorted moulds, with which I have never had a problem.
