The other day I got super lazy and bought a frosting for a cake that you can microwave and pour. Then I thought, "Hey, can't you do this with any frosting?" And so that's my question! Is there something special about it that makes it microwaveable? Can't you microwave any other kind of store bought frosting?

I have not tried microwaving the canned frostings but I have tried this. I bake a chocolate cake in an oblong pan and immediately after taking it out of the oven, I spread the canned chocolate frosting on it while the cake is hot. The frosting starts to melt immediately and it seems to seep into the cake. It seems to give the cake a double cholocate flavor.

As it cools, the cake gets a very glossy look. It makes the cake very moist and it is convenient because the cake stays in the pan and you just cut your servings from there. This is very tasty and easy. I even think that the frosting on the hot cake takes the "canned" taste out of the frosting.

I saw that nukeable frosting in the store the other day and thought "WTF??" 

I've been making yellow cakes, poking holes while hot, nuking frosting for 30 seconds or so, stirring, and pouring on when the cake's mostly cooled for about 5 years now.

Peeling off all the tinfoil covering though.  We haven't died from it yet and it makes a GREAT poke cake.


If you pour it on too early though, you get all your frosting on the sides (I'm talking a Pyrex casserole dish here) and the holes suck in all the frosting leaving your cake looking like your husband walked over it with his golf spikes. Smiley


I'd say it's their way of making more money off a repackaged product. Smiley

Agreed! It's all microwavable, unless the container says otherwise!

krazigal- I used it and I wasn't really to fond of it either. When I make a cake usually, and I eat it, I stick a piece upside down on the plate so that the frosting sticks to the plate and I can scrape it off last and eat it (Yeah, I know... sounds sick. But really, I should just skip the cake and go straight to the frosting container... Tongue) But when I used this stuff, it was melted into the cake and very little stuck to the plate.

kyou-that reminds me of a great tip that's sort of related...

If you don't want your frosting to get stuck to the top of the container you put your cake in for lunch, cut the cake in half laterally, put the bottom on the top and make a sandwich out of it... frosting in the middle.

tastes the same and you're not scraping the container for every last bit of frosting.


Yay!
