Has anyone tried this and what's the verdict on taste and does it crust?
Thanks!

I'll reply to my own post - I tried the buttercream and love it! It's not as sweet and crusts beautifully! I even imprinted my paper towel pattern in it by accident. Next project is frosting a cake with it. Anybody want the recipe - I'll post it.

I'd like to give it a try if you can post the recipe

Hi Obesa,

I just tried a coffee creamer buttercream icing this past weekend for a Memorial Day picnic.

However, my family wasn't too thrilled with it - but I think it was because I used 1/2 real butter and 1/2 shortening (Crisco). But, they're used my normal 100% crisco icing and seem to like it better.

I would be interested in you posting your recipe.

Thank you in advance!

I started with the least amount of water and heated it a little, added the powdered coffee creamer and stirred till it dissolved. Then I added the flavorings and went on with the directions - next time I'm adding 1 teas. each of almond and vanilla. I continued adding just a little water at a time till I got it to the right consistency. Also, since Crisco has changed the formula in their shortening I used Walmart shortening with trans fats. It really is very good and doesn't seem so greasy or sweet.

Bakery Frosting
Ingredients

* 2 cups shortening
* 1/2 cup non-dairy powdered coffee creamer (such as Coffee Mate)
* 1/2 teaspoon almond extract (can use more to taste)
* 1/4-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
* 1 (32 ounce) package confectioners' sugar, sifted
* 1/2-3/4 cup water
* food coloring, use color of choice

Directions

1.
1
In a large mixing bowl beat the shortening creamer and extracts.
2.
2
Gradually beat in the confectioners sugar.
3.
3
Add in enough water until frosting reaches desired consistency.
4.
4

Thank you, Obesa for the recipe. I will be trying it next time I make a cake.

...and, you know what? I think I may have used Crisco rather than my can of Walmart crisco. Thanks for the reminder.

Oh, I meant to add I heated the water a bit and then stirred in the coffee creamer powder and let it cool. I'm thinking that you could probably use the same amount of liquid coffee creamer - I may try that sometime. For now, I'll use up my container of powdered creamer. I'm going to try this on a cake and serve it to my family to get their opinions - should be excellent with my almond sour cream pound cake and raspberry filling.

Thanks Obesa

Just a thought,, wouldn't this be great with the flavored powdered coffee creamers?
obesa 06/01/2009 4:44 PM
I thought about the same thing and I think I've read some have used French Vanilla with good results.

I have used cinnamon coffee creamer and hazelnut on a spice cake and that is really good. I have even used strawberry milk on strawberry cake, it's yummy!!!

I used the liquid coffee creamers...

Is it overly sweet? I want to try it...but am afraid it's too sweet. (Not that that's ever stopped me before...)

saradars 06/02/2009 8:33 AM
Another question....is it white white or a little off white (if you use just the plain, unflavored creamer)? I like white white frosting.

Thanks!
obesa 06/02/2009 4:21 PM
I don't think it's overly sweet - I think it is not as sweet. It isn't white - white though.
