Diane, you should be busy making a wedding cake!! I didn't know what dream whip was either til Joe told me where to find it. I found it at my commissary (Barksdale AFB, Louisiana) on top shelf right above puddings & jello's. It was $2 for one box here! Let me know how much it is there. Joe said there is 3 pkgs in each box. I'll try it one day.
Get to baking that cake woman~ Good luck by the way!!!

Dream whip frosting is lighter and fluffier then buttercream. My wife says it tastes life professional frosting but not like buttercream. It tastes to me like a think cool whip, but sweeter. I hope I made sense. Janzcakes version will become my choice of frosting after I tweek it a little to make it my own version.
I tried Janzcakes recipe for Dream whip frosting last night. It crusted beautifully, and tasted great. The one comment I got from both of my grown up son's was loose the salt. They both said that they could taste the salt in it, but other than that it was great. I only used 1/2 tsp like the recipe said, so the next time I'll try not using any salt. I also added 1/4 cup of flour. Thanks for the great recipe Janzcakes. Everyones ideas, and help on here are greatly appreciated
How long to you whip it for? I've made the recipe twice now and it turned out great! I only used 2T od flour and the salt and it was perfect, no salty taste. I also whipped it for about 3-5 minutes once all the ingredients were mixed.
I whipped it about 8-10 minutes. I think that the recipe turned out great, as did my kids. The salt thing I think is an individual thing, as there has been some heart issues in our family, and we use salt in cooking but no added salt. I put the left over icing in the fridge overnight, and the salty taste was gone, so possibly it hadn't absorbed completely yet. This is a great recipe and I plan to continue using it. Some icing recipes call for salt while others don't, so I feel it is a personal prefernce
I tried Janzcakes recipie and I loved the taste but I think it was too soft. I added about 4 TBS of flour to it. Should I have added more powdered sugar or more flour? I followed the recipie to a "T." Also, I didn't notice it crust over, but I made the cake and had to deliver pretty soon after. How long does it take to crust?
