Will this icing crust?
Can you use butter intstead of margarine? We don't use margarine and hate the taste.
I would mix in 1 tbs of Meringue powder into the powdered sugar before adding to mixture and that will make it crust.
how much butter should I use in place of margarine? (margarine is one chemical compound away from plastic)
has anyone tried this? I'm wanting to try it but wondering why the rating is so low? I wouldn't use margarine either, should be a straight substitution for butter - same amount.
what is 10X powder sugar??? is it the same as regular powder sugar ?
10X just means it's sifted 10 times more then what's considered to be "normal". But just an fyi, I make so much icing that I buy generic powdered sugar and off-brand names (like bulk at Sam's or store brand at Albertsons) and it's just fine and usually is also "10x" like the name brand. Personal preference I suppose! :)
I have made this several times and it is AMAZING!!! Every one Raves about it!!!! Thanks Msjenn for sharing!!!!!
Can you use butter instead of margarien?
Yes I often substitute butter for the margarine. It is a 1-1 ratio. Margarine has no cholesterol, high cholesterol is a problem in my family. It crusts just fine without meringue powder.
