  • Well, mine comes in a little container that says "Betty Crocker" or "Pillsbury" ...and then all I do is divide into little bowls and add food coloring to make different colors.

    But then again, look at my screenname ... it's not likely I'd do any more than that! LOL!

  • 1 stick of Butter
    sm pkg. of cream cheese (I think 12oz. or 8oz.) not the smallest one but the next size up from that.
    1 sm box of powdered sugar
    Let the butter and cream cheese soften , mix together and then add powdered sugar and frost! I really use for frosting cake but i have used it for sugar cookies! ENJOY
