Frugal Friday

I borrowed this tip from an e-mail I received, but I tried it and it works!

 Expanding Frosting
 When you buy a container of cake frosting from the store, whip it with
 your mixer for a few minutes. You can double it in size. You get to
 frost more cake/cupcakes with the same amount. You also eat less sugar
 and calories per serving.

  1. That’s a great tip. I’m actually making a cake today. However, I’m using a homemade frosting, but I’ll try whipping it. How does the texture of the frosting change? Is it a lot lighter and fluffier? I prefer my frosting that way anyhow.

  2. what a great tip! i bet the “whipped” frostings are just that – you are probably getting half the frosting for the same amount of $! i am going to try this next time i make a cake
