This may sound like a silly question but can you simply make double of the Wilton BC recipe without any problems? Should you adjust any of the ingredients? I've been having a hard time with my BC recipe so I'm looking for something different and remember liking the Wilton one. I need a pure white too, so no butter. Any suggestions or tips?? Thanks!
I have never made a single recipe. I have always doubled the recipe and never had any problems. I use butter and use the wilton white coloring. It comes out snow white.
You can double it no problem just add thinning liquid as needed. I use a recipe that contains 1/2 butter and it stays snow white. I think it depends on the type/brand of butter you use though. Some are very yellow, others are so pale that the icing will stay white.
I too only make a double recipe. I havent used any white coloring and I do use half butter half crisco. I haven had anyone ask for complely white frosting so it hasnt been an issue for me.
Same Here. I always make a double batch.
I use the Wilton Snow-White Buttercream recipe, and always double it with no problems. It will give you a pure white color if that's what you're looking for. It's listed in the recipe section of every Wilton Yearbook.
Sounds great! I used to always use the snow-white Wilton recipe but then for some reason decided to change. Here lately I seem to be having more problems with it so I decided to switch back. Thanks for the quick answers everyone!
I always quadruple the recipe..not problems so far!!
That's what I was going to say! I'm jealous!! I could cut my icing-making-time in 1/2 with that idea!
I have the 6qt KA...the best part is, I weigh everything, so the only stuff I have to wash is the mixer and rubber spatula!!
I have the 6qt. too...... I LOVE IT! Perfect size. I could never ever downsize. I always feel like I have "room to grow."
