This product is used to make an alternative icing to buttercream. It is a white shortening, meaning it is gluten and dairy free / vegan. You can use it as a substitute for butter giving you a true white base. Starting with a white buttercream base ensures you get a true colour for your icing. It has the added benefit of being more temperature stable than butter, so you will not lose your icing effects on a hot or humid day. The optional addition of Meringue Powder can also be made to guarantee this.

Some decorators do prefer the taste of buttercream when the icing is made with butter, however this will give you a yellow or slightly off-white base colour. This means that if you want to create a blue icing, adding blue colour will make your icing teal or with green colour you will get chartreuse. This is perfectly fine if you are not fussed about a true colour, if you’re after a specific colour, when matching a theme for example, this could be a problem. As a compromise you can use half shortening, half butter, giving you a whiter more stable buttercream with a lighter taste.

Another option is to use LorAnn oils to flavour the icing - this adds so many options! Some of our favourites would have to be coconut, barvarian creme and key lime!

We have been really impressed with the quality of the icing made with Sno Creme - both in taste and consistency.

So good!

I have always hated buttercream, simply for that overpowering buttery flavour and yellow colour. This is awesome. Makes a beautiful fluffy, smooth, WHITE frosting that picks up flavours so nicely. You also dont have to battle with extra flavourings or colours. Makes a nice ‘American’ type frosting. So good for stacking too as it holds really well. Can’t recommend enough!

Vegan "buttercream"

Awesome product to make vegan "buttercream", whips up pretty much the same as regular bc just beat it for ages! It's also PURE WHITE so if you just need white, and not the vegan aspect you can use milk instead of water. Easy to colour. Quite sweet so I use less when stacking. Also can add a little into regular buttercream to help stabilize. Great for stacking a cake in a hot summer!
