I have just starting making my own cakes for my children's birthdays and decided to use Dream Whip for the first time for my son's 6th birthday cake. The cake came out great, but I'm not sure if the icing would have worked better (especially the piping part) if i had used buttercream instead. i guess it's just trial and error.
I was just wondering what everyone's opinion is, whether they find one is better than the other. I found the dream whip good as all I had to do was put it in the beater and add the stabliser and it didn't taste as sugary, but at the same time, I know exactly what I have put into the buttercream icing when I make it from scratch.
Any views on this would be great!
