Wilton Icing

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

has anyone tried the Wilton icing in the tubs, found in cake decorating section of Michaels, Joanns. Cost about $18.00.  Was wondering about taste consistently, etc. and would anyone recommend it.

Thanks.

I bought that once in an emergency when my electricity went out, and I thought it was weird. Stiff and sticky and tasted like a big ball of fake.

My icing is about $7 a batch and makes 6 pounds 6 ounces. It has cream, powdered sugar, butter, vanilla and hi-ratio shortening. It is consistent every time, since i weigh my ingredients, and I hate icing but really like my own.

Okay, thanks.  I will stick with what I know; homemade butter cream.

Agreed!! Homemade is Better and tastier too!!

I've used it, but it doesn't compare to homemade at all. The taste is weird when you're used to buttercream and the consistency is not good for icing a cake smooth.

I used it when I took the Wilton classes, but I didn't enjoy eating it when it was on the cakes, and I didn't really want to give too much of it to my kids. But the tub comes in handy for storing my own in!
