I guess my mind isn't wired the same -- when I thought about "british icing" I thought "are you kidding? It's royal icing and it dries hard as a rock!!" icon_lol.gif I still don't understand why people want to ice a cake in a medium that requires a chainsaw to cut the cake though... icon_confused.gif

Geez, Now how I respond when all my very proper British neighbors want to know what I'm giggling about??? "Oh, I'm just thinking about icing!" Yep. chalk another one up for the crazy American.

Ok Iam now going to take this to the gutter,
A few years ago I said to my hubby, I fancy a take away (meal) and he replied, 'yes I could do do with a stiff Indian'
I still have to restrain my mirth when I think of it. When he realised what he had said he was redder than any hot curry would have made him.

It's usually in the refrigerator section at Tesco, Sainsbury's etc. Not far from the butter and margarine. If you don't see it there, check near the refrigerated pastry crust... it's sometime's there.

Any supermarket in the butter aisle next to where the stork would be. It is a White box. It's a bit gross though, I use butter personally.

Me as well, I know alot of people use 'shortening' to make buttercream with, but I think the name says it all. Nothing can beat the pure indulgence of all butter buttercream..... saying that I've never tried to make buttercream with T-Rex or even taste it, but just something puts me off... just my opinion icon_smile.gif

No I shop at asda and it is near the butter.
I have used 50/50 trex and butter with Dream Topping and a little milk, it is delicious but have never tried it all Trex.
