As far back as I can remember, I have LOVED what my mom called "fluffy icing". I've never been a fan of traditional cake icing and always scrape it off and give to someone else. But for the last 44 years, EVERY year my dear mother makes my "special" cake - Homemade Angel Food cake with Fluffy Icing. Usually pink or purple, although I've requested green, blue, red.......
Lucky me - NO ONE in my family can stand this cake. So more for me!! This last June, however, my 18 yr old did try it and loved it himself. For both of us, this icing has a marshmallowy (is that a word?) taste and texture.
But, I cannot find it ANYWHERE near me!! I've checked online and many people are also complaining. But guess what??!!! Amazon.com sells it!! I was able to buy 12 boxes and got them in 2 days. SO EXCITED. They don't expire until May of 2012, so no worry there.
Instructions are simple- add 1/2 cup boiling water to the contents of pouch.
Then, use your mixer - 30 seconds on low to mix thoroughly. Then 5-7 minutes on high until stiff peaks.
I then went to find food dye and we didn't have any!!!!!!! ACK!!!!!!! lol I've never kept it white (or I should say, my mom never kept it white. lol)
If you have not tried this, you must check your local grocery stores. If not, order it online. You won't be sorry!
