has anyone used the tub Wilton frosting (white) and added to it to make it taste better?? I have two big cakes coming up and I was thinking about cheating on one of them and using the tub stuff.. but not everyone likes that.. has anyone doctored it with success??

Sorry, I have never had any luck doctoring it up. For me it is better to bite the bullet and make icing.

... or if you have a samsclub membership, go buy their icing in the bakery dept. It doesn't taste bad, but it's not as good as homemade. I would do this in a pinch.

When I first started and needed the quick frosting, I would use the Wilton tub. Honestly, I didn't think it tasted too bad even without doctoring. I'm not sure how I would feel now, but back then, I only had the other Wilton recipe as my alternative buttercream. Now I use Indydebi's or Earlene's Cream Cheese buttercream. That being said, I'm sure you could add a bit of almond, and clear vanilla to provide a little umph to the tub. That, or buy a tub of Sam's. I've never had it, but others on here say it is good.
