Reviews forBakery Frosting
"It looks amazing!"
"I replaced half of the crisco with butter and made sure to beat it for a long time. It is very good this way and changing the extract will give you some great flavors. I use this instead of buttercream now."
"I love the taste of this frosting I use it on most of my cakes I had been looking for that recipe for a while never get tired of it"
"I will agree with JB PAR on this recipe. The use of powdered creamer is terrible. This screams of shortening and not smooth, creamy icing. I much prefer a sweet and creamy buttercream icing for my cake than this one. And no bakery I ever went to has icing that tastes like this recipe."
"i used this recipe and i really liked it. i would use it again and again on cakes and cookies"
"i love see this recpie"
"They look so sweet."
"As a novice cake decorator who loves to decorate cakes for my family, I love this recipe for use as a decorator frosting. I've read some of the comments about how it has a lot of shortening, well butter cream decorator frostings do contain lots of shortening. This recipe however has the advantage of the powdered creamer in it which makes the frosting creamier and smoother. The creamer adds to the flavor along with the almond flavoring. It works well in a decorator bag as well as spreading it with a knife. I love this recipe much more then to standard butter cream decorator frosting recipe."
"I don't usually write bad reviews, buttttt......this really is awful!! It doesn't resemble any bakery frosting I've ever had. No matter what flavor you add to it I feel like I have a mouth full of shortening! And powered non-dairy creamer is something I've never liked and don't know why its even added to the frosting. I wouldn't recommend this recipe."
"I will bake that and eat it, with my family."
