I'm making a pistachio butter cream. I made my normal butter cream & added pistachio pudding mix & it's gritty!! Is there any way to fix this problem!! Help!!! PLEASE!!!

Take a small portion of this buttercream and mix in some milk. Try at least 2 tablespoons milk for 1/2 cup of icing. If this works, then fix the rest the same way. 

 

Jello brand pistachio pudding also has lumps of nuts present, so you would have to pass the icing through a sieve to get rid of them.  Next time you can sieve the dry pudding mix to get the nuts out.

 

FYI instant pudding has starch that absorbs liquid very quickly from whatever you mix with it.  So to avoid the graininess, you have to add more liquid.

It might take more than 2 tablespoons.  You didn;t say how much icing you made nor did you say how much pudding you added.

 

FYI the LorAnn pistachio flavouring is really tasty in icing. No lumps either LOL

It will take 15 minutes for the pudding to settle down with the extra liquid.

 

LorAnn oils are sold in many many places and online.  The company is at www.lorannoils.com and they are carried by Michaels and other candymaking craft suppliers.  Look at the website for your local dealers or buy direct.

 

You can buy the oils in 1 dram bottles (1 teaspoon) to try them.  If you buy the ounce sized bottles, then also buy the droppers that screw on and replace the bottle caps, so that you can easily drop the stuff in because it is really that strong.
