I'm looking for an excellent buttercream recipe that taste good & is easily spreadable....I've been having trouble getting it to spread smooth. Any suggestion?? I'm fairly new to cake decorating, but I really want to learn more.
Please try ShirelyW's IMBC in the recipe section. It is wonderful!
I've been making this one for a year, and I absolutely love it:
Check my recipes out and try mine. It's great. Tastes wonderful! and spreads nicely! One thing though I have found with all butter creams, if you mix it too much you get too much air into it and it never gets smooth.
Another thing with my recipe, it's TOO sweet when using store brand powdered sugar, but perfect when using Domino brand powdered sugar. Also I use real butter w/salt added so I don't have to add a pinch of salt or anything like that. I always use Whole Milk and only whole milk as water and crisco don't mix
