How to Make Store Bought Frosting Better and Go Further
Store bought cake mixes and tubs of frosting are so affordable that I often use them versus trying to bake totally from scratch. I know, I know… homemade is always better, but I am all about making life as easy as possible and this is the best way to save on time when baking in a hurry. You can alter just about any of them to your liking so why not? I won’t tell if you won’t!
I thought there just may be one or two of you out there who might be as disorganized and short on time (most of the time) as me and could benefit from this tip.
To make your canned frosting go farther, place it in a large bowl and whip it with a mixer. In just a few short minutes your frosting with almost double in volume! Genius huh? As an added bonus you eat less calories in a serving. Score! You can always add any kind of ingredients to change up the taste as well. My favorite way to add a little bit of pizazz is to add an 8-ounce package of cream cheese into a 16-ounce can of storebought vanilla frosting. It enhances the flavor, reduces the sweetness and increases the amount of frosting. Perfect for carrot cakes, red velvet cakes, spice cakes etc.
