What is the texture of this icing? I have seen the recipes but it is lighter feeling than regular crisco buttercream?

This is my favorite icing...HOWEVER....my math conversion is horrible and I realized that I was putting in 8 cups of powdered sugar, instead of 4 cups. icon_redface.gif When I realized it I made it the correct way but liked it much less than when I put in 8 cups. It makes more and it is not as greasy so I stick with the 8 cups now. I whip it for about 5 minutes in my KA. It is less sweet and very light.

What dream whip recipe do you have? I have 2 and they call for 2 pounds of powdered sugar. That equals 8 cups.

Are you sure? I used the converter on this and also checked the site below and they both say that 4 cups is 32 ounces which equals 2 pounds.

Now I'm really confused icon_confused.gif Anyone else know?

2 pounds equals how many cups???

One pound of powdered sugar is approx. 4 cups. Buy the 2-pound bag and measure it.

Well, I always knew that 4 cups equals a pound so I just thought that 8 cups equals 2 pounds. Maybe I am wrong. I dunno know now.

This line reminds me of the old kids joke -
Which is heavier a one ton elephant or one ton of feathers?

Answer: neither - both weigh a ton! icon_lol.gif

Also, depending how hard you pack things, or whether they are sifted, they will measure a 'cup' differently.

Just a guess here but I do think that liquid is different than dry when it comes to measuring.

1 cup equals 8 ounces in liquid
2 cups equals 16 ounces in liquid

But when it comes to measuring dry ingredients you have to use dry measuring cups and not liquid
measuring cups.
