Bettercreme Fun! - Page 9

post #121 of 1302
Love all of the flavour ideas! I like to mix a small box of jello (any flavour) with one cup of boiling water, let it cool and become slightly thick, and then mix it in with the bettercreme. My most requested is strawberry jello with some of my moms home made strawberry jam all mixed into the bettercreme! yummy! especially with banana cake!

Also, for the peanut/nut allergy, there is no warning on the carton and my son is also peanut/nut allergic and I have used it with no problems.

Mmmmm ShayShay that sounds so good!! I have some homemade strawberry jam that I made a bit ago... I might have to try that one!!

Michelle, my favorite cake flavor right now is a toss up between the banana and the coconut. There is something about it. It's just marvelous!!

I have to get a P/T job icon_cry.gifthumbsdown.gificon_cry.gif so I am going to wave my majic wand and freeze the threads and then have them read to me as you type. icon_lol.gificon_cool.gif

I will read all these pages asap because I am still trrying to get thru the cupcake thread. I just love, love, love the sharing and other stuff that goes on in this site. icon_wink.gificon_cool.gif

I feel like I know some of you guys personally. I know what your responses will be, but I still can't wait to read them icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif . I hope all is well with everyone's family.

I am in Rockland County, NY and I am doing my best to find Bettercreme.
My DS is sick of hearing tapedshut.gif about Bettercreme except when he thinks about the cakes/cupcakes I could make for him. icon_razz.gif

ElectricCook, we're glad to see you!! There's not much that is more fun that pulling out a lurker! We just love to have fun here and it's better when more people join in!

And yah, ig hubby wants treats he'd better learn to SHUT UP!! Hahahaha! Seriously though, if you can't find the Bettercreme, everyone says the mock version is really good! Give it a try. I am thinking about making it just so I can tell people with some authority what I think of it!

I'm telling you guys though if you try the mock whipped add 1/2 a pack of Dream Whip to it. Also I'm trying to figure out the best way to add the flavoring. Normally I add whatever flavoring I use to the Milk. But Im wondering if adding the syrup while it whips would be ok or if it would make it runny. I guess theres only one way to find out.

That's an interesting question Melody! If you try it, please, please let us know what happens. I know I add my flavoring to the regular Bettercreme while it whips. The first time I did it I thought, "Ok, I'm about to ruin this... here goes everything!" and I was SO relieved that it worked!

That's it... I'm going to make some mock!! I have to. I need to be able to say whether or not it's easy, good, etc!! People ask me that alot and I am embarassed when I say, "Uh... I dunno!" I always say, "Well, a lot of other people SAY it is, so..." icon_redface.gif

LOL It's easy enough. And pretty quick. The biggest pain about it though it having to constantly stir the flour and milk so it doesn't get clumpy then having to strain it so no clumps get into the frosting. But for not being able to get Bettercreme it works for me. I have several people who don't like frosting that I make this for because they love it. When i made my white Chocolate Macadamia Nut cupcakes I used this recipe and the frosting was the best part. I added the flavoring to the milk.

I spent all morning looking for this product online. The only place I have found it is from sugarcraft. Does anyone else have a suggestion for purchase online?

Is this product good for those of us who are buttercream challenged? icon_redface.gif
I just cant seem to get the buttercream smooth. I need to get sugarshakes videos i suppose. I will wait until she dries out down yonder and then get a video order.

Mel....let me know if you try the mock and what you think.

Ok, so, I can't find Bettercream OR the other brands here. What the heck?! I mean....nada. So depressing. I'm going to have to buy gallons of it when we go to MN. However, that does bring up a question.

Ok, so if I can find a big ol' bucket of the stuff, how much (cups?) do I use for one batch?
