You can weigh crisco out ahead of time, just put a piece of wax paper on the scale, blob the Crisco in the middle of the paper, wrap the paper around the Crisco and stack the bundles in an airtight container.

Very easy on conveniant, especially since my 6yr old does that job for me! Keeps her busy and more importantly out of trouble.

Dream whip can be purchased at Walmart or any store, usually with the jello and puddings hiding in the top shelf. Its in a box and has I think 4 envelopes inside. costs about $1.00-$1.50 depending on your region

Hope that helps

Can I use the generic brand of Dream Whip? It's so darn expensive.

I've never used anything but Dream Whip. I get it at Walmart ... the big box is about $3.25 with 4 large envelopes, so I get 10-12 batches of icing from one box .... $0.25-$0.35 per batch.

This sounds like me... icon_redface.gif Well, not at WalMart but my local Meijer store instead.

Ok ok ok... HOLD IT! So, in the original recipe, it says "3 tbsp powdered dream whip" then later it says that you can get "2-3 batches from an envelope" but someone later said there is "approximately 4Tb per envelope." icon_confused.gif

Is the original recipe supposed to mean 3 teaspoons? Because in there there was something about "2 or 3 Tbsp clear vanilla" is that Tablespoons? I've always used either T for Tablespoons and t for teaspoons... or Tbl and tsp...

I need to do something to fix my frosting but don't want to screw it up any more than Crisco already has! Not that I can imagine anything that couldn't be improved with Dream Whip... icon_biggrin.gif

OK, I'll actually measure it next time I make a batch! icon_lol.gif

As I recall the recipe it was 2-3 Tbsp. But I'm to the point that I just pour some in, and I can get 3 batches from an envelope. So I"ll double check that!

I used 3 Tablespoons (Tbsp) of both Dream Whip and Clear Vanilla, and it turned out great! icon_biggrin.gif I only got two (2) batches of icing out of an envelope of dream whip, but who cares? laughing... It works and I was actually able to use the Viva method to smooth it today for my class tonight... Yes...the dreaded "Clown Cake"....chuckle icon_razz.gif

I've never used merinque powder. My understanding is it helps the icing to crust? (meringue users, please correct me if I'm wrong). This icing crusts ok for me so I've never had a need for the merinque.

As with anything ... give it a shot! The worst that can happen is you decide not to do it that way next time. thumbs_up.gif

The crusting is the only reason why I use the mp. Also helps the roses stay. I'll try this one and won't use the mp. Thanks!

I always weigh out my shortening also. I weigh anything that's a pain to measure.

I'd never heard of dream whip before...I might have to check it out icon_smile.gif
