Ok, I just skimmed through this thread to see what the scoop on the new crisco is. I've never been one to follow a recipe to the "T." icon_lol.gif I'm more of a guestimate, toss, and mix to see what happens baker. Basically I use crisco, powdered sugar, merringe powder, and flavoring in my icing... sometimes measured, sometimes not!! I made some chocolate icing for Father's Day with the new Crisco and had no problems with it staying on the cake. I did however have trouble with my roses having jagged edges. BUT, I "cheated" a bit... and mixed in some CANNED chocolate icing to get more flavor. I've also mixed in vanilla canned icing as well for other colors/flavors before. Of course, canned icing is full of trans fat.... so maybe that helped hold it together? It does make a softer less stiff icing, so it isn't ideal for everything. I may bake a cake for the 4th of July and add just a few spoons of canned icing in the mix to see what happens....

Anyway, I know not everyone wants to use canned icing, but it was just an idea I wanted to toss out!

Melliemelo: try the Perfectly Chocolate Chocolate Icing on the back of the Hershey's Cocoa can. It is easy to make and has an intense chocolate flavor. I use it for all my chocolate icing projects. It will smooth easily and sets up quickly. I've used the Viva method to smooth it and it works fine. I've also used it for roses, vines, other flowers, and borders. It is versatile and yummy icon_biggrin.gif .

Oh hubby added more lol....
I love making the buttercream and I don't understand why other husbands don't help out with it since it only takes max 20 minutes lol....

Does your hubby clean up after he makes the BC? If he does, we'll have to clone him! Now if there is one that makes buttercream, bakes the cakes and cleans up.... oh in our dreams....

P.S. I didn't see the answer to using the new Crisco with the standard Wilton recipe - any difference? Is anyone here going to start a black market for the original Crisco?

Does anyone know WHY the cornstarch would make a difference (maybe I'm be too inquisitive here - if it works, it works! icon_lol.gif - but I always like to understand these things in case there may be a future use).

Just an FYI: The WalMart brand shortening does contain animal fats, versus Crisco is all vegetable, just in case you have a vegetarian concern.

Thanks, Sharon, I didn't realize that. I'll make sure to look for that one next time!

I just bought some "real" Crisco at Food Basics which is a division of A&P if someone is looking for it.

Made Wilton's BC this weekend using a store brand that has trans fat 3g in it and it was the most disgusting stuff I've ever made !! My tiers slid, the frosting was overly greasy and it seem to make the actual cake greasier (the next day after cutting it).Also, the BC was sweeter than usual--- I hate that Crisco changed ! It's like when Coke changed it's formula--Public outcry forced them to go back to the original. I'm marking these cans "Not for BC" (as mentioned in this thread). Either Im switching to Hi-Ratio or full butter, until a solution is found

Thanks so much for the milk tip! I am the queen of icing cracks, and I have always used water instead of milk. I am going to try the milk with a few drops of vinegar today. I really hopes this solves my crack problem!!

[quote="aobodessaThe problem seems to be that our politicians want to make us all healthier. Doctors have been telling us that it's the trans fats that clog our arteries quickly. Therefore, if we eliminate them from our diets, we'll all be healthy! Sounds simple doesn't it? icon_rolleyes.gif

The problem comes in when the politicos want to make this change mandatory for "the good of all", not just the people who could benefit. They don't think that we're capable of reducing our trans fat intake on our own icon_rolleyes.gif ; no, they must regulate what we put into our bodies! Argh! icon_cry.gif Odessa[/quote]

So we now have a millions of people dying of lung cancer from cigarettes every year... but at least their arteries will be unclogged lol. icon_wink.gif

Sorry I'm just seeing this now... for some reason I wasn't getting notifications of new posts... Anywho... yes he does clean up afterwards and he has been known to bake the cakes as well when I was ill.... I had surgery on my foot (had a piece of glass go straight in straight to the bone and break into 5 pieces - I shattered a straight glass storm door by touching it in the winter icon_sad.gif and ripped my thigh open as well lmao 50 stiches and surgery to my heel... I wasn't makin no damn cake! lmao) anyway sorry... yes he did make the cake, make the buttercream, and clean the kitchen from top to bottom when he was finished (as did before lol) all I did was sit on the side of the bed with my leg propped up, a table in front of me and decorated the cake oh and accepted the payment of course lmfao icon_wink.gif
