I have seen it before, twice actually. I don't think canned icing will fly with me though..... It is way toooooo sweet..... And I make Buttercream a lot but I have tasted this canned icing and its just too sweet.... To cover a cake for a wedding I don't think tha it is a good idea...
Box cake mixes (eventhough I don't do them often) can be very good and firm if you doctored them... So the cake mix was okay, but the icing NOT!!!!
I did like the other things se did... Wasn't the tent lovely!!!!???
