I know this question has been done over and over....but I still have a question.
I am a newbie...very much so, and when I took my one and only cake decorating class, the instructor gave us a recipe for buttercreme using only shortening...and it doesn't taste too good.
So, I just wanted to know what everyone' s favorite buttercreme was.
For white American buttercream I only use the Buttercream Dream recipe in the recipe section on this site. For chocolate I use Toba Garrett's Chocolate Buttercream, which is totally amazing (you can find that recipe on Epicurious). I love Swiss Meringue buttercream if I don't need it to crust.....the texture is wonderful!
There are two recipes on this site that everyone raves about
Indydebi's Dreamwhip buttercream
SharonZ (SugarShack)'s fantastic buttercream
I have use a version of Z's for years. She has videos on YouTube w/the recipe and how to make it. You can't go wrong with this one!
