Indydebi,
How do you store this? I see it has milk in it and I live in SC where its 100 all year. I use just a regular crisco/butter recipe buttercream at the moment w/out milk, I use water. Can I leave out in a container or does it need to be kept in fridge?

Thanks

I'll answer, I'm sure Indydebi will when she sees the question. At room temperature. This icing "behaves" much better if it's left out of the refrigerator. The sugar in the icing prevents the milk from going bad. I have kept it for as long as two weeks at room temperature and it was perfectly fine. Your recipe will be fine as well. I'm surprised that you're able to use any butter in your icing since your temperatures are 100 degrees. I'm unable to use butter in my icing 9 months out of the year. This recipe taste so good ya don't miss the butter.

I live in Arkansas and it's HOT (100 degrees) LITERALLY...and HUMID (98%-115%) And one reason I use her recipe exclusively is because it will hold up (even at outdoor events) in this heat and humidity. Honestly. thumbs_up.gif

I know isn't that amazing. You should check our honeycakes blog and see just what a "beauty" she is. thumbs_up.gif She also has a photo of the wedding cake that she made a couple of weeks ago on her blog and it is almost as beautiful as she is. icon_wink.gif

Mamawrobin, what dreamsicle recipe do you use,,I want to make Indydebi dreamsicle icing and I was thinking about doing a fresh orange cake, but a dreamsicle cake sounds good to,,I just need a cake fix lol... icon_biggrin.gif

mamawrobin,
Thanks! I don't do many buttercream only cakes. Most of my cakes are iced with buttercream and covered with fondant. I'll have to try this recipe when I get a break. Funny, when buying supplies at Wal-mart today I saw Dream Whip and started thinking of things I could do with it. Something told me to buy it. (I've learned not to listen to the voices I hear though, lol) Thanks!

Hello all- I keep seeing Dream whip and have never heard of it. I typically make an all butter SMBC but always looking to try new things. Can someone describe what this product is, how cost effective it is, etc?

Dream Whip is a powdered whipped topping. It has been around for several years (at least 35) and I believe it's made by Kraft. You can find it on the aisle with pudding and jello.

Maybe i missed it...but how do you turn the recipe from buttercream icing to cream cheese icing. Thanks!
post #27 of 103
I'd like to know how to use cream cheese in this recipe also. This is my exclusive icing now, gets RAVE reviews everywhere. It even has me eating icing, which I never did before, lol!!!

The last time I did a regular cream cheese icing it was horrible to work with in comparison. I never thought of adapting indydebi's recipe. Duh! Looking forward to replies.

I'm at work right now...shhh... icon_lol.gif When I get home and have a little more time to be on here...I'll post my crusting cream cheese icing (adapted from Indydebi's buttercream) Check back...I'll post this evening. thumbs_up.gif

Not to hijack this thread, but mamawrobin- when you say you use half and half, do you mean half butter, half Crisco, or do you mean actual half-and-half instead of milk? Dumb question, I know, but I'm a newbie!
post #30 of 103
I am pretty sure she uses half and half instead of milk, she doesn't use butter because of how hot it is where she lives.

I am looking forward to the cream cheese recipe.....
