Dream Whip not so dreamy! - Page 2

post #16 of 32
At the risk of sounding stupid... What is dream whip and where would I find it? By the pudding/jell-o section? This recipe sounds really interesting and I'm thinking about trying it on my next cake.

Flour in icing doesn't taste bad when you have vanilla & powder sugar in it~ I use the faux fondant recipe & it tastes soooo good!!

Does your family know that the BCI we decorators use is so much better then the one that the stores use? I used to hate BCI from stores. When I started taking wilton's classes & then got plenty of help in CC I love the stuff!! Has your family tried the BCI the way we make it? Make it & get them to taste it. I think they'll change their minds~

They dont like how sweet it is. I think i have tried at least 7 or 8 different recipes. WAY to sweet for me and for them. I guess we just prefer the whipped cream flavor. which recipe do you use????? So far none of the ones i have treid from this site and others have passed the taste test

Regular vanilla will discolor your icing slightly.

Once the flour is mixed with the other ingredients you shouldn't even be able to tell it is in there! Janice

Its ok if it discolors it cause i am coloring it red for my cake. So it doesnt have to start out brite white. How long does dream whip icing store for???? If i make a batch this week would it br gross by the 16th???? I want to try it before i decide its going on the birthday cake but if its good i dont want to waste it.

OHHHHHH... I agree, but it blends in to this icing and you don't notice it....it just makes it not so sweet! At least that was my experience. icon_razz.gif

A single batch can ice and decorate a half sheet cake. I made a batch of yellow and was able to ice an 8" round cake with enough left over to do another.

and yes, uncooked flour does taste nasty icon_redface.giftapedshut.gificon_biggrin.gif

Dream whip is usually found on the top shelf by the Jello and puddings. I love this recipe and it has replaced all my previous icing recipes.

Powdered dairy topping (or is it non-dairy can't remember). Look for it near Jello and the like just like dragonwarlord stated.

well i will try it. Our walmart has the 4 pack boxes for $3.00 at our local grocery it was almost 4.00 for a two pack. it always amazes me how much cheaper walmart is than my grocery store. Any ways if i make a batch this weekend and put it inthe fridge would it still be good by next saturday the 16th?????? And it is already in the 80s where i live in texas will it still be ok sitting out the day of the party????

I am no expert, however I think if you don't use milk and you keep it in the fridge it should be fine!!! I kept mine in the fridge overnight because I noticed that it started to get too soft the more I worked with it....in the decorating bag! I live in Houston TX and I wouldn't worry about it sitting out the day of the party . Once you have decorated the cake it should be fine. Good luck and let us know how it turns out!!! icon_biggrin.gif

Even if you use milk it can still sit out and will not spoil. the sugar in the frosting acts as a preservative. the only issue you will have is the icing getting soft.

This is not about dream whip BUT I'm going to bring it up anyway icon_smile.gif

I see a lot of people from TX on CC now. That is sooooooo cool!!!! Are any of you close to Shreveport/Bossier City, Louisiana?? I have only found one person from La. on here & she's in New Orleans or Baton Rouge. Too far from me. icon_sad.gif I was just wondering! Everyone is getting together on the East Coast to do a "Day Out" cake thing. I'm sorry but I forgot what it was called. I'll have to go check on events forum. Anyway doesn't that sound fun to do it in the south?? I'm not an expert at cake decorating but I would really like to be involved w/ that! Just wanted to mention it. ~TC~
