flavored frostings

For years I have used your white frosting for many baking projects by coloring or flavoring it. My favorite is to use a "jello" packet to flavor and color the frosting. I have used up to four different flavors with one can. Just remember to add only 1 packet per can, so if you want 2 colors/flavors use half packet, 4 colors/flavors 1/4 packet to the divided frosting. The frosting flavors are only limited to your imagination.



Why did they take one tablespoon of butter from the cake mix recipe?
