No. Big no. This is runny and not even close to Publix brand frosting. Thankfully, I purchased a container of frosting as a backup plan.
Definitely no where near the Publix buttercream recipe. More like a lemon cream cheese pudding. I'm so disappointed!
I am sorry to say this this is very far from the Publix buttercream recipe. This is more like a filling for a cheesecake. In fact, this does not even harden up enough to be a frosting at all. It's very tasty, but it is not a frosting.
