We just had a visit with a cousin who's been using Pastry Pride for quite some time & just delivered a wedding cake iced with it. She says she usually adds a little vanilla to it, but often uses almond extract or similar. She just raves over Pastry Pride. She brought out a bowl left over from the cake that we dipped strawberries and other fruit in. Can't wait to pick some up at Costco or Cash and Carry and give it a try.
