I was so excited to have the opportunity to do my first review! Especially when I found out it was for dessert icing!
Signature Brands is a company specializing in the manufacturing and distribution of dessert decorating products. I was sent the latest innovation in their product line, Oreo ® Ultimate Icing and Hershey ® S’mores Dessert Icing. They come in a convinient squeezable pouch, which makes it easy to pipe onto any dessert.
I received the Original Crème and Chocolate Crème of the Ultimate Oreo® and the Traditional and Chocolate Cinnamon of the Hershey® S’mores variety and four sets of decorating tips.
I chose to use the icing to decorate cupcakes. My birthday happened to be the week that the icing arrived, so it was perfect timing! You can check out their website, http://sprinklesandgrins.com/ or their Facebook page for a wide variety of dessert ideas for any occasion.
It took me a couple of cup cakes to get used to the flow of the icing, but I think it turned out pretty well! I am anything but a dessert decorator, but with the pouches and decorating tips, it was easy. I think this would be a fun activity for older preschool and school aged kids!
As far as the flavors go, I was really surprised by the Chocolate Cinnamon! I was wary of cinnamon added to chocolate, but it was really good and turned out to be my favorite. I will admit that I had really high expectations from the Oreo® flavored icings (we are big Oreo® fans here!). They didn’t taste a whole lot like Oreo® to my husband and I, but were good none the less. Just more like a light chocolate flavored icing.
The four pouches I received iced four dozen cupcakes with a bit left over, so a pouch does go a long way. I also really liked that you could just put the cap back on and save what you didn’t use for a later date. In short, the squeezable pouch is fun and convenient for decorating desserts and tasty too! My 2 year old also agreed!
Are you interested in receiving the same icings I tried out? Of course you are!
