    I read a long time ago on the inside of a frosting can label about adding powdered sugar to frosting to get more that bakery, stiff type frosting. Have any of you ever done that? I was thinking of using it to decorate the big cookie and brownie for DS birthday that I posted about. Am I missing something about frostings that might be easier? This is one subject I know nothing about! LOL I love to eat the stuff, just never made it homemade before!

    Yes, I have added powdered sugar to canned frosting. It did make it easier to decorate with. I don't know how much I added- I just kept putting in by TSP until I thought it was the right consistancy. It worked great! But it tasted like powdered sugar!

    you can buy tubes of the decorating stuff in different colors. can get a bit expensive if you want a lot of different colors.

    Casslepier,
    I love that bakery frosting, too! :) It's almost too sweet, but I like it anyway. I would never have thought to add powdered sugar to canned frosting to get that same effect. I'm glad you posted about it. Thanks!

    Kim,

    My icing I put on Birthday cakes is really easy. Do you want it?

    Sure do! Is it good to decorate the big cookie and brownie with (as in stiff enough?)
    Thanks Lis!

    It's the icing I always use for things like this. My Aunt used to decorate cakes for the public and it is her recipe.

    1 box powdered sugar
    1/2 cup crisco
    1/4 cup milk
    1 tsp. vanilla

    Just mix everything til smooth.
    You can add more sugar if it is too soft and milk if it is to thick.

    Note: I usually double this to ice and decorate a whole cake.

    Doggone it ! I just lost my whole post. Just aggravates me when that happens.

    Anyway, My aunt use to decorate cakes for the public and this is the icing she always used (and the one I use on anything I have to decorate).

    Here it is:

    1 box powdered sugar
    1/2 cup Crisco
    1/4 cup milk
    1 tsp. vanilla

    Mix everything til smooth.
    You can add a little more sugar if you want it thicker; more milk if you want it thinner.

    Note: I double this to ice and decorate an entire cake.
