Store-Bought Frosting Only Gets Better With A Cup Of Powdered Sugar
To give your store-bought frosting the right consistency for coating cakes and piping on decorations, add powdered sugar, which acts as a thickener.
Before using sugar, empty a can of frosting into a bowl and whisk it until it’s creamy. Incorporating air will produce a frosting that will look and feel like homemade frosting.
This whipped frosting is ideal for spreading in between cake layers and using as a crumb coat, but you’ll want to add powdered sugar to the remaining frosting for decorations.
To incorporate it, simply mix a single spoonful of powdered sugar at a time with your frosting until it reaches an optimal thickness. Then, you can start decorating.
