I use this on cakes of all kinds. It's very simple and you can use it plain or I use Jello Gelatin powder to flavor it and color it! This always turns out great! I use it on jello poke cakes a lot and it's a great addition!

  3. Add powdered sugar by the tablespoon while the mixer is on a low speed. Once all the powdered sugar is incorporated, whip for at least 1 minutes. Scrape bowl of mixer as needed. Optional: Add the jello powder at this time, first starting on low speed and increasing speed to incorporate.
