Sno Creme 500 grams


This product is use to make an alternative icing to buttercream. It is a white shortening, meaning it is gluten and dairy free. You can use it as a substitute for butter giving you a true white base. Starting with a white buttercream base ensure you get a true colour for your icing. It has the added benefit of being more temperature stable than butter, so you will not lose your icing effects on a hot or humid day. The optional addition of Meringue Powder can also be made to guarantee this.

Some decorators do prefer the taste of buttercream when the icing is made with butte, however this will give you a yellow or slightly off-white base colour. This means that if you want to create a blue icing, adding blue colour will make your icing teal or with green colour you will get chartreuse. This is perfectly fine if you are not fussed about a true colour, if you're after a specific colour, when matching a theme for example, this could be a problem. As a compromise you can use half sno creme, half butter, giving you a whiter more stable buttercream with a lighter taste.

The other option is to use LorAnne oils to flavour the icing - this adds so many options!

We have been really impressed with the quality of the icing made with Sno Creme - both in taste and consistency.

500g Icing Sugar
Approx 70ml Water or Milk
Vanilla essence or other LorAnn oils to taste (Optional)
Place the shortening, vanilla and water/milk into a mixer and mix until smooth. Add icing sugar and mix well. You may need to add more water to get the desired consistency. Scrape the side of the bowl while making the icing.
