hold red food coloring and is not awfully sweet?
My daughter's second birthday is coming up. She wants an Elmo birthday cake. I like to use cool whip as icing, but it will not hold the red color. Does anyone have a good recipe for an icing that not too sweet but will hold red coloring? Or should I just buy the tubs at the store and color them? Thanks. :)
You can color the tubs at the store and powdered food coloring works much better than liquid for really bright bold colors. For something not too sweet I love cream cheese frosting. Here's the recipe I use
In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter until creamy. Mix in the vanilla, then gradually stir in the confectioners' sugar. Store in the refrigerator after use.
