Frosting mixes can be purchased on the Web and in specialty food stores and can be the basis not only for frosting, but all kinds of desserts as well. The flavor varieties are countless. Having some basic flavors on hand will serve you well when you go to make candies, pie fillings, and sauces.

The Convenience of Frosting Mixes

With our busy lives and hectic schedules, we often don't have time to prepare the homecooked meals that we'd like to. Gourmet frosting mixes allow you to quickly mix up batches of puddings and other sweets that will please everyone. The results are tasty with a real homemade goodness unlike instant pudding and frosting mixes.

For the health conscious consumer, some frosting mixes are sugar-free and recipes are available that blend them with skim milk and other low-fat bases. This is a great way to indulge your sweet tooth without all the added fat and calories. Angel food cake with sugar-free icing is a favorite of dieters everywhere.

Many frosting mixes can be prepared not only for icing on cake, but for delicious pie and pastry fillings as well. Add some walnuts to a vanilla icing and you've got a wonderful filling for a layer cake. I like to add crushed up peppermint candies to a cream cheese frosting for holiday treats. The possibilities are endless when you've got some basic frosting mix flavors on hand.
