    I don't know if this recipe has been around the BB yet...My neice, the cake baker, just tried it and thought it was a keeper!

    1 1/2 cups Crisco shortening
    1/2 cup French Vanilla flavored powdered coffee creamer
    1/4 cup boiling water
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1/4--1/3 cup hot tap water
    1 tsp. clear vanilla
    1/4 tsp. lemon extract
    1/4 tsp. almond extract
    2 lbs. powdered sugar
    1/3 cup French Vanilla Cake mix (DRY)

    Dissolve powdered creamer and salt in 1/4 cup boiling water.
    Cream shortening. Add creamer mixture and extracts, mix well.
    Sift powdered sugar and cake mix together.
    Add sugar mixture a little at a time, alternating with tap water. (start with sugar mix so you can adjust water as needed)
    Mix on low until well blended and creamy.

    Notes: 2 tsp. vanilla can be used instead of additional extracts; OR use 1 tsp. creme bouquet flavoring

    Flavor of the icing can be varied by using other flavored creamers and/or cake mixes.

    You can make chocolate by using plain creamer and adding 1/2 to 2/3 cup of cocoa powder instead of the cake mix.

    You can make this in a 11-12 cup food processor.

    This recipe crusts well; can be used as a faux fondant(smooth with paper towels or unscented Kleenex tissues)

    Is this for real?? I've never heard of cake mix in frosting. I can't wait to try it.

    This just sounds to good to be true.
    I have to make a cake for DH to take to work so might try it . Those guys will eat anything. They send me Fresh vegs so I have to keep them in goodies. If I like it and I am sure I will I have a family reunion to go to and this might just impress everyone.

    Yes, this is for real...i don't know where my niece got it, but she used it on the cake she made for the high school graduation reception and asked me to add it to our family cookbook, so i'm taking her word for it that it was good!
