Anyone have a great crusting buttercream recipe to share? I'm not thrilled with the one I am currently using - it tastes too much like the grocery store frostings and I would like something a little more flavorful/rich.

Thanks!

Hi mconrey,

Have you tried the recipe section? There are several crusting recipes on there (just use crusting as your keyword). I just tried the following and thought it was good (the only one I tried previously was the Wilton class bc icing & this one is sooo much better)!

This is the best one I've tried. It's by Indydebi and crusts very well.

1 1/3 c. crisco
1/3 to 1/2 c. milk
3 TBSP. dream whip (it comes in a box)
2 - 3 TBSP.clear vanilla
2 lbs. powdered sugar

Thanks for all the responses! I'm going to have to try them out!

On another note - I just tried the Whimsical Bakehouse Buttercream recipe today and I'm not sure how I like it yet. It is not crusting and is not sweet at all. Seems like it would be difficult to decorate with. It reminded me a lot of Twinkie filling....But is was very light and fluffy.
