    Default Thickening betty crocker icing?

    Does anyone know how to thicken the betty crocker icing? i have found it is to thin to do the little spikey icing star things? lol and i would like to know if putting icing sugar in it would thicken it?

    Or if not, does anyone have a yummy icing recipe, that will make the peaks and wont flop

    icing sugar should do the trick if mixed really well... however you might light to mix up your own icing (a bit thicker than you want) then mix it in with the betty crocker.... i've never used her icing...

    I use lots of butter and icing sugar and cocoa (milk, orange juice, lemon juice, etc whatever flavour you need)... beat it up

    Do you mean betty crocker frosting in a tub? If so it's not designed for piping.
    Good old fashioned womens weekly buttercream icing works great for piping.

    I have a recipe that is soft and creamy like betty crocker,pipes well, but it really fiddly to get right, if you'd like it? it involves candy thermometers and beating eggwhites though, just warning you!
