    Smile Leftover Canned Icing Question

    Usually when I make a cake I ice the cake using
    canned frosting (Duncan Hines) and there's
    always 1/3 of the can left and I hate throwing it
    out.

    Any recipes or ideas what it can be used for?

    TIA

    When I was young, as a treat, my mom would take two graham cracker squares and put the leftover icing in the middle. That was dessert for school lunch some days.

    Freeze the leftover. Eventually you'll have enough for a cake.

    Or, the dark chocolate ones, when frozen (it never gets very hard) make a good stand-in for a spoonful of fudge. Don't ask how I know this.

    That has never been an issue around here. My husband will eat icing from the container. It takes great effort on my part to get him to wait until after I use what I need for him to eat the leftovers.

    I just put it in the fridge and eat a spoonful every couple of days.

    I think you can make fudge balls out of chocolate frosting.

    Same here. I hardly ever throw it out. Either that or I just use up the whole can....you can never have to much icing

    I just save it in the can it comes in and use a small scoop when I make the homemade warm delights.

    I just use 1/4 c cake mix (flavor of your choice),
    a couple T. water...
    stir to mix up right in a microwavable bowl...
    throw on a small spoonful of frosting and then
    microwave for 1-2 minutes...

    It is really good and makes just what you need with no leftovers, that way the is not "big cake" hanging around calling my hips all week, lol!

    This is what I do as well. My kids hang around the kitchen eyeballing me, telling me "make sure there is left overs"

    They love this snack more than the actual cake.

    My mom also did this as a snack for us girls.....love it!

    My husband likes it spread between saltines. We usually do leftover frosting that way.

    You can make S'Mores in the microwave with it. Put a marshmallow on a graham cracker, spread another graham cracker with chocolate frosting (or any flavor you like), make a sandwich of the two, microwave till the marshmallow is puffy (watch closely because it doesn't take long), and then squish it together and eat.

    WARNING: The following is downright EVIL! Read AT YOUR OWN RISK!! You can also make Mexican S'Mores using chocolate frosting. Spread a flour tortilla with peanut butter. Then spread on the chocolate frosting (or use whatever flavor sounds good to you, or use chocolate chips). Sprinkle with mini marshmallows and roll the tortilla up. Put seam side down on a plate and microwave about thirty seconds or till everything is gooey. Gain five pounds because they're horribly addictive.

    I eat it straight from the can. And then lick the spoon.......
