What can I add to canned frosting to make it taste more like homemade?
By Lois Crane from Midwest
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.
