what is bright white and almond emulsion?
Bright white is White food coloring...I subbed almond emulsion for almond extract and creme bouquet with my own version. THIS is the perfect icing!
if im not mistaken brite white is an icing base. most bakeries use it in their icings.
tried this today and yummy I love how white it is
What does "scant 1/2 Cup Cold Water, less 2 Tablespoons" mean? Sorry I'm new :)
Scant....just a little less. Scant 1/2 less 2 tablespoons means fill to 1/2 cup and remove 2 tablespoons. I also heat the water a little in microwave so it dissolves the salt completely. Im in Florida Luby's recipe has NEVER let me or my cake down!!! Working on oldest daughters wedding cake and will use this recipe once again. THANKS LUBY for posting @-^--
This is just what I was looking for! I live in Florida too and have distasterious results with other buttercreams! Can't wait to try this one out! Thank you for sharing.
What is creme bouquet? and is this a really smooth icing?
The only Brite White I could find online is an icing base. How can you get a "heaping teaspoon" of food coloring. Is there anything I need to use as a substitute? Cake is for this weekend.
