Indydebi's Buttercream-a"testimonial"!!!

post #1 of 171
Thread Starter 
I made a cake for a friend's granddaughter's first communion. I had been wanting to try Indydebi's Crisco-Based Buttercream, and I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to experiment, because my friend is pretty open to anything. I asked her if I could try it, and that it was supposed to stand up well to heat and humidity. (It's in the 80s and sunny here today.)

Well she called me while ago to tell me the cake was a success. Her granddaughter was excited to have her own cake and it tasted really good. My friend went on to say that while they ate in the restaurant, the left the cake in the TRUNK OF THE CAR! And, yes, the icing held up just fine.

Thanks, Indydebi. I'll be using that recipe again!

I like it, too. I was having trouble with the grittiness, so I warmed up the milk a bit and dissolved the dream whip in that and voila, no more grit. Oh and I beat the living heck outta it for awhile and it was smooth as a baby's butt and iced beautifully

I tried it last week for the 1st time, wont ever use another one again! Her icing is the best! Mine however melted in a tupperware container in the kitchen slightly, it just got a little shiny, but to be honest I didnt care, it was still yummy & it was for my hubbys b-day! And I'm guilty of eating her frosting right out of a spoon when Ive finished using what I need out of it icon_biggrin.gif

Yep. I've PM'd her (and wrote a testimonial) for Debi's BC after I used it the first time and have not used anything since. I warm my liquid as well and actually cream everything together before I add the sugar for a smooth, easy-to-work-with BC. Instead of milk, I've been using the Italian Cream Coffee Creamer --OVER THE TOP YUMMY!!! Thanks, Debi!

They were in charge of the bread set out on the table, the flour for the grain offerings, the unleavened wafers, the baking and the mixing, and all measurements of quantity and size.

I want use anything else but deb's. Had a wedding yesterday 85 degrees and the cake held up beautifully. I even gave my sister the recipe because her daughter was selling cupcakes at the ball park. There was another lady selling cupcakes and her icing must have been from the 'tub' and everyone kept saying that it was almost sliding off the cake. My sister was worried about being in the sun for so many hours with the icing, it got soft but didn't break down icon_wink.gif and she even got repeat customers for the icing alone. THANKS DEB...

I LOVE her icing. Now whenever I have the Wilton recipe, it tastes like just plain sugar and lard to me. YUCK!!

And I have used this recipe A LOT. I put in butter, almond and vanilla extracts. Everyone raves about it. I think I have gotten quite a few orders based on this icing! But that could be from my yummy cake or awesome talent too! icon_biggrin.gificon_rolleyes.gif

On a side note......

For business sense indydebi is the BEST!!! She tells it like it is while still allowing others to feel comfortable about asking. I respect this woman as much for her business savvy as her amazing icing. icon_wink.gif

Someday when I decide to grow up, I want to be just like her! icon_rolleyes.gif

Everyone loved it on my cake yesterday!

I made some wonderful flowers to place on cupcakes with it and they dried very nicely.

Can this icing be used on a cake if the cake can't be refrigerated for 3 days? The reason I'm asking is I see there is milk in the recipe and I don't have room to refrigerate my cakes.
Thanks,
Sandy

It would be fine for 3 days - probably even longer.
