Does anyone know where the recipe is? I found it once but I can't seem to find it again. icon_cry.gif Also, has anyone piped with it? If so, good/bad results?

thanks,
Joe

I am not sure if this is the one you are looking for, but this is the one that I use. It pipes wonderfully. Not too sweet. http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-711.html

Here is the Dream Whip icing recipe that I have:


1-1/3c Crisco shortening
1/2 envelope of Dream Whip
2 teaspoons chear flavoring of your choice

Whip at high speed for 7-10 minutes

Then add:
2 # Powdered sugar
1/2c flour
2/3 to 3/4 c. milk (less for stiff consistency)

Whip at high speed for another 7-10 minutes. Then set mixer at low speed and mix for a few minutes!

I haven't tried it yet! Let me know if you do and if it's any good or not!

Thanks!!

With this icing do you have to use milk? Can you use coffee cream? Do you have to keep the cake in the fridge because of the milk? Can you use water instead of milk?

Thanks icon_biggrin.gif

here is my version of the dream whip bc icing. I don't use milk but water. It is the best icing I have ever used and I use it for all my party cakes. It is great to work with, crusts enough for designs etc and is not too sweet either. Everyone loves it.

2lbs or 1 kg bag of confectioners sugar
1 pkg dream whip
2 cups crisco shortening

1/2 cup boiling water
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp clear vanilla flavouring
1 Tbsp clear corn syrup

Whip up till fluffy. No need for refrigeration but it is fine in the fridge as well. Tastes great, not so sweet and crusts well. I have tried so many and this is now my main buttercream.

I also started adding 2 Tbsp to 1/4 flour to this recipe and it also cuts on sweetness and aids in crusting. Works well.

Is dream whip also cool whip? I get confused on some words on here we use different names for things here in the south. icon_smile.gif Thanks!

Dream Whip is a powder that is usually sold by Jello and puddings. In my opinion, I think it tastes better then cool whip.

Thanks Janzcakes!

I tried your recipe and it turned out great! My wife loved it. It was not too sweet and works well with the cake. I decided to try the non-milk version because I would not want spoilage if the cake was left in a warm spot. I'm taking the cake to work for opinions. I will post their opinions later tonight.

Hey Joe,

I found the dream whip at the base commissary. It was $2 a box!! That price nearly blew me over!! I decided not to get it this time. But I will try it one day. Does 1 box go a long way? I was shocked at the price especially being at the commissary! It must be a lot more off base. ~TC~

Hi TC!

$2 per box is pretty good here in frigid Michigan. The cheapest I found it was $3.49 per box. I used the store brand and that was $1.39. Using Janzcakes recipe, I was able to ice an 8" round cake and had enough left over to probably do another!! Each box has 3 envelopes in it. I did not decorate it as I was just seeking opinions at work.

I made a devil's food box mix (cuz it was on sale thumbs_up.gif ) and everybody LOVED it. THANK YOU JANZCAKES icon_biggrin.gif !! Some of the responses I go was:

Not as sweet as most frostings

It's so light and fluffy (that was the #1 response)

It's not overpowering like some frostings

Pretty much those were the majority of compliments I received. Nobody said anything bad about it. It was sampled by about 15 people. This is the frosting I will be doing for my daughters birthday icon_smile.gifthumbs_up.gif
