Review: Cherrybrook Kitchen Vanilla Frosting Mix January 6, 2008Posted by glutenfreedance in Celiac Disease, Food, Gluten Free, Reviews, Shopping.
Our Celiac’s birthday is on Christmas Eve. I really didn’t feel like going to Henry’s for his cake mix AND make another trip to the “real” store just for icing so I thought we’d give this mix a go. It would have been better to stand in a two hour line at the real store than to have ever made this. “Crap” is just too good a word for how this stuff tastes. You couldn’t get better results from mixing half a pound of butter and another half pound of powdered sugar. That’s exactly what it tastes like, butter and powdered sugar. (Which is pretty much all that is in it.) On top of that, as with all “organic” food, this box of mix costs a whole heck of a lot. Then they require 2.5 sticks of butter to make it. The total cost to make this icing comes in at well over $5 (between $6 or 7 if you use Alta-Dena butter like we do) and it only covers one small cake. But nothing makes a kid happier than really gross icing, so the kids loved it. Of course, we are talking about people, after all, who think McDonald’s food is as gourmet as it gets.
