*By Henry & Henry. Only available in Wholesale Bakery
Supply in 5 gal pail. You might try substituting regular
marshmallow creme. Does not contain gum------only
difference. But one reason I use this is to make my
buttercream roses crust harder. I can handle them better.
We sell this in smaller quantities in our cake supply shop.
Other reasons to use it:
Makes icing softer & more "whipped creamy" tasting.
~Takes out a little of the sweet taste too.
Add in order given: Crisco and flavors in a heavy duty
mixer on low speed. Add milk or water and confectioners'
sugar. Mix on medium speed until light and fluffy. Keep
icing covered at all times. This recipe will cover one cake
mix and do decorations.
Keeps unrefrigerated for 2 weeks in reasonably cool room.
Keeps indefinately in fridge...Yes, made using milk too!
Milk/Water- makes no difference in taste.
But roses made using milk, don't fade to blue.
***Hand-held mixer: Don't add all the p.sugar so you won't
burn up the mixer. When icing is nice & fluffy, THEN add
the rest of the p.sugar...or enough to get it to spreadable
consistency. If mixer gets hot , turn it off
for 20 minutes to cool it down or its ruined! Chocolate
Icing: Add Hershey's Cocoa until the buttercream
icing becomes the nice rich chocolate color you want. If
you want strong chocolate taste, you must add more cocoa.
Butter: Of course icing made with butter tastes better. But
it melts just setting out, so think what it does in the bag
in your warm hands! Of course, you can substitute butter
for Crisco or sub. half the Crisco, making
it half Crisco & half butter. When butter icing is
requested, I do it & just caution my customers that the
decorations won't be as perfect. Usually they don't mind.
