Hi everyone,
I discovered this site a few months ago when i was taking my wilton courses a few months back, and from that moment on, i was hooked! I finished up all 3 courses and have made a few cakes here and there but I do have a few questions and hopefully someone will be able to help me out. When it comes to selecting the icicng flavor how does one choose it? For example, if i was going to make a white cake with maybe coconut milk mixed in there, can i add coconut milk to my buttercream icicng as well, or is that just coconut overkill? AND, if i dont add the coconut milk to the icicng, what do i add to compliment my cake? I have a ton more questions to ask but all in due time (aka im too sleepy to type anymore).

Mnay thanks in advance,

of course you can but of course you would only want a small amount in there coconut would be overkill if you use too much... also remember coconut milk is thick thick thick...honey is thinner!! So I would mix coconut milk with a little regular.

Thank you so much for responding! Well i decided to experiment a little and added 1/2c milk and 1/2c coconut milk to my white cake mix ( it called for 1 cup so what the heck!) Its baking right now, so we'll see. How much honey would you use ? a whole cup? Let me know, THANKS!
