Cherrybrook Kitchen Vanilla Frosting

I love finding new allergen-free foods to try at the grocery store, and I recently brought home this ready-to-spread frosting from Cherrybrook Kitchen. I was excited to try it, because sometimes you just need a quick and easy solution.

I hate to say it, but I was disappointed.

The formula passed the allergen-free test, as I expected, but what I saw when I opened the container didn’t look much like frosting. It was hard as a rock, and stirring it felt a little bit like stirring a container of old glue. It didn’t spread well either – I had to almost paint it onto my cake. About halfway through frosting my cake I dipped my finger into the tub and tasted it – um… no, this didn’t taste like vanilla frosting either.

I scraped as much of it as I could off of my cake, and started over with my stand-by vanilla frosting – Duncan Hines.

Have you tried it? Did I just get a bad batch?

Mine looked the same...Agreed, it was horrible.

Kind of a bummer.

I had the same experience, but I thought it tasted okay. It looked more like a glaze you would put on top of sticky buns instead of frosting you'd put on the cake.

Yes, it would work better as a glaze -- but a very sticky one!
