The Doctored Buttercream Dream recipe sounds very good to me, as the half butter/half Crisco style of buttercream is my favorite, but I wanted to make something a tad less sweet for those who prefer their frosting that way, and I came across this Doctored Buttercream Dream recipe. How is it to work with when trying to get a cake smooth? How is it to work with when making decorations such as roses/flowers, leaves, etc.? Here is the recipe for reference: http://www.cakecentral.com/recipe/7336/doctored-buttercream-dream Thanks!!
Hoping someone can answer, as I am making a graduation cake this weekend and am on the fence about adding Dream Whip. I am wondering what Dream Whip does to the consistency of frosting. Does it make it softer?
I have added a few tablespoons of the dream whip in place of milk or cream when I am making buttercream just to make it more smooth and give it a more creamy taste, which didn't cause any problems. I am not sure about adding a lot of it, I would think it might make it too soft to pipe flowers or use the viva paper towel method to smooth it.
