Pillsbury wow!

They made sugar free frosting Not the healthiest stuff but I think once in a while and in little amounts this would be good.

Pillsbury

That's cool! But I read the ingredients, and it looks absolutely toxic! lol...I'd eat it though...lol.
Something funny, too, it boasts that it's sweetened with Splenda, but sucralose is the 4th to last ingredient on the list, and that's also after the "contains less than 2% of the following" thing. Too funny!

Have you checked the carbs? In my experience 'sugar free' does not equal 'low carb' necessarily.

UGH.... I wouldn't touch that stuff with a 10 ft pole. it has 17 carbs per 2 tbsp serving... the first ingredient is transfat loaded PARTIALLY HYDROGENATED SOYBEAN AND COTTONSEED OILS..... its also filled with sugar alcohols (notorious for stalling weight loss and causing intestinal bloating and GI upset).... I cant think of a worse product combo.

You can easily make your own sugar free frosting that would taste better and wouldn't have soy or trans fats. Basically you mix butter, whatever fake sugar you use, a little bit of vanilla, and a little bit of heavy cream together and then you have a quick frosting that is pretty much the same as the real thing (well except a lot of places use shortening which is gross anyway).

So true!! I have made a cream cheese frosting that is every bit as good as the real thing with cream cheese, powdered eyrithritol and vanilla. YUM

I'm in this camp on this one.

I am pretty strict about avoiding transfats! So at first I was "Wow! I'm so happy!" ........and then I saw the terrible ingredients starting out with partially hydrogenated soybean and cottonseed oils, and I just turned away.

I'd make my own with butter/cream cheese and real powdered sugar before I'd eat this. Unhappy.....

Yes! People think frosting is so difficult to make. It's really not. And homemade frosting tastes way better.

Step 6 is applying the sugar free frosting to the ends of the various folded tiers of tissue and making little points with it, obviously.

The protocol calls for vanilla frosting with white toilet paper, avoiding that "terrible mistake" vibe you might get with chocolate.

I totally agree. This is so fast and easy I frequently make a bit of it with one ounce of cream cheese to frost 6 flax muffins. My husband is very happy with frosting! LOL
