Indydebi - ou have renewed my faith in using an all-Crisco or 1/2 butter, 1/2 Crisco BC.

Ladies - do a search for Indydebi's tried-and-true all-Crisco BC using the new zero trans fat Crisco. IT WORKS!!!! The secret is using the Dream Whip - I looked at the ingredients on the box, and it has .5 trans fat in each serving - it put the transfat BACK into the ZTF Crisco icon_eek.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif .

The recipe works like a charm. Thank you Indydebi icon_smile.gif.

Really? that's the reason? Huh! Learn something new everyday!

Seriously, I had no idea. It's the only recipe I've used for 20+ years.

Here's the recipe if anyone is interested. Remember, measurements are approximate because I'm a "until it looks right" cook.

2 lb p.sugar
1/3 to 1/2 cup milk, for consistency
2 or 3 Tbsp clear vanilla
1-1/3 cup crisco
3 tbsp powdered dream whip

Can you use water instead of milk? Just curious because I rarely have refrigerator space for my cakes and don't frostings with milk in them have to be refrigerated?

Thanks.

Can I bother someone to tell me where you purchase the Dream Whip? My icing recipe is pretty similar but i've been trying to find a way to improve on it. Thanks so much!!!

No, they don't. I never refrigerated mine .... never knew why it was ok, until I found CC .... but I learned the milk and sugar stabilize each other.

I can find dream whip at Kroger....in the same aisle with things like oil and condensed milk. At my Kroger, it's on the bottom shelf so it's kind of hard to see unless you're looking for it.

the PROPER ratio of sugar to fat suspend the molecules that need water to cause bacteria growth. most buttercreams (including real butter and milk ) can stand out at a reasonably cool room (70 degrees F) for up to two days and be just fine.

A new use for Dream Whip! In my family it is used for a Jell-O dessert at every family function called Seafoam Salad. Sounds appetizing, doesn't it?!?!

Just wondering what's the problem with the ZTF crisco. I havent had a problem, but I also do a 1/2 crisco 1/2 butter Buttercream because I don't like the film all Crisco buttercream leaves in the mouth. Just wondering?
