Melted Yogurt Icing Cracking
I use melted yogurt to decorate my dog treats and then I freeze them overnight.
The yogurt works very well for the decorating, however it has a tendency to crack after awhile. Is there anything that you know of that could help prevent the cracking? Adding something to the yogurt? I'm also looking for something that would help it stay firm and not melt, so that I could possibly ship some treats to my family members and their dogs. If you have any suggestions, I'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks!
Dog Treat Icing Expert:
I am guessing that you are using yogurt chips for your dog treat icing since you mention melting. Yogurt chips contain sugar and fat. Fat solidifies when cool, which is why you need to heat the chips and make them melt before you can use them as an icing.
If you were to ship dog treats coated with yogurt chip icing, and they started to heat up in a hot truck, or were being shipped to a warm environment...guess what! The icing would start to melt, because the fat content would heat up and begin to liquify. Your recipient would receive a gooey package.
This is not the case with Magifrost dog treat icing. It will not melt and does not require refrigeration.
Fido's Frosting was developed specifically to enable dog bakeries to decorate their dog treats with an icing that not only would not crack, but would not melt. It does not need refrigeration and dog treats can be shipped anywhere at any time of year.
Fido's Frosting is made by K9Cakery.com, the online dog bakery supplies company.
