I am looking for a crusting buttercream recipe that tastes like canned icing. My husband prefers canned. The problem I have for the cakes that I bake is that canned does not crust. I tried the basic confectioners' sugar, crisco, butter, almond, and vanilla today and husband hated it. icon_sad.gif Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I wonder if you just added more powdered sugar to the canned frosting if it would crust. You could experiment to see if that would work.

I have had this problem before with people actually requesting canned frosting over home made but like you said, it doesn't crust so what I found works is to add a can of frosting to your regular home made BC recipe. It can fool people into thinking its canned because of the consistency and taste but it will crust! HTH Good Luck!

Simple. Use canned icing for your DHs cake, and crusting BC for your regular cakes.

A little late...but thanks everyone for your input. I will have to try adding the one can to my crusting recipe. I have tried adding powdered sugar but I'm personally not a fan of the overly sweet taste, but that doesn't mean it is not good. Thanks!
