Does anyone know anything about this recipe? It sounds great, so I'm going to try it. I just wanted some feedback first, though!
It can be found here - http://www.wrenscottage.com/kitchen/recipes/icing/crust_butter.php
These are the ingredients:
2 pounds sifted confectionersâ (powdered) sugar
1/2 cup or 1 stick of softened butter
1 1/2 cups solid vegetable shortening
2 tablespoons clear vanilla extract
1/3 cup water for icing the cake -or-
1/4 cup water for stiff consistency
1/4 teaspoon imitation almond extract
It says it's a crusting buttercream. Tell me about it if you've tried it -- is it yummy and how well does it crust? Thanks everyone!
That's a standard (good) American b/c recipe (1 cup fat to 1# powdered sugar).
The same recipe with minor variations:

(Brite White, Angel White & Snow White are all icing bases, which might be available at local cake decorating shops or available online.)
Thanks for listing all of these recipes in one spot! It's great!! I'm going to start trying them!
