So I LOVE decorating cakes but I absolutly HATE making buttercream. I was wondering if anyone had used Wilton's Ready to Use icing. How does it taste? How does it spread? I just wanted some thoughts on it. Or do you use a different kind of already made icing? TIA!!
I use either a crusting butter cream or Frostin Pride a non dairy whipped frosting. You whip it up like whipped cream but it can be left unrefrigerated for up to five days once it has been whipped.
It sucks. Honestly. It tastes like a can of Betty Crocker or Duncan Hines icing. I used it in a pinch a few months ago and I probably will never use it again. It was sticky and thick, even after thinning it out with A LOT of hot water.
I use CK Buttercream sometimes, good to have in a pinch. You can order it in many different sizes and it taste good too.
i agree taht the taste is awful, but it is actually nice to work with. I'll use it for competition pieces that won't be eaten. if you're practicing, it's a nice alternative than coating your kitchen with powdered sugar. plus you can use a 40% off coupon at Michaels or Hobby Lobby!
