Put it in the mixer and whip it adding some good vanilla or flavor of choice. This increases the volume and sometimes I add a bit more powdered sugar. It really tastes good.

I'd like to know how to doctor-up canned frosting. I have beaten it up and it does increase the volume slightly, but I'm looking for something different.


I would appreciate any help and advice.

so 'real' frosting is essentiallly sugar & butter/cream cheese, so you add some real butter /cream cheese if what you want is to give it volume. Or add 1/4 cup of powdered sugar then mix by hand to improve consistency.

Or a spoonful of vanilla or almond or other cool extract. Or food colouring. Or more sugar.

Can you add marshmallows to canned frosting to make marshmallow cream frosting?

If you heat up the marshmallows and whip it in I think it would work.

No, I do not think this will work at all. I think it is better to just whip up a batch of marshmallow cream frosting for your cake. You will be changing the canned frosting too much and this can cause it to be runny or taste horrible.

The recipes to make marshmallow cream frosting are so simple and easy. I would just make my own.

If you put marshmallows in canned frosting you would get lumps of marshmallows in the frosting--which could be good if you cut up some Hershey bars and graham crackers you could have a modified "s'more" icing which could be amazing, but it would not be a fluffy marshmallow frosting.

I have only ever made cooked marshmallow frosting and it is a lot of work:

This is one of the ones I have used.

I find it cheaper in the long run to buy a Pillsbury Marshmallow Frosting. It is one of the few times I buy a name brand and only when I get coupons.

You can if you melt the marshmallows with butter and whip it til it's smooth then whip in the frosting, but it won't be like the wonderful marshmallow cream frosting you're thinking of. You'll have some consistency issues especially after it sits a bit.
