does her method work w a butter based buttercream instead of shortening?

I have never tried it with butter and before trying sugarshacks icing, I didn't like just a shortening based icing...but her method of making the icing makes it really delicious and a good consistency....

I cant stand shortening based frosting because it feels greasy in your mouth (higher melting point and all) so I am really hoping I can use butter based. I am always amazed at how wonderful the cakes that are made by people who use method are.

Sugarshack's icing recipe is workable for a long time. It is the only one I've been able to use with her methods of smoothing because the others dry out too fast and I don't have time to properly smooth with her techniques, which are the BEST.

I have not done it with the butter, I use the hi-ratio shortening and love the texture and creamy feel it has to the palette, way better IMO then just shortening.

I have read were others have used all butter in her recipe or half butter and half shortening...but I am not sure if they used her methods of smoothing. I also recall when her 1st. dvd came out, Perfecting the Art of Buttercream, seeing in a thread were some of her methods could even be used on cakes iced with IMBC and others.

If she sees your post she will reply (she is very nice about that) or you could IM her with your question. She is always great about helping you out if she can. She's a sweetie!, and you are going to love her dvd's.

God Bless,
Sharon

Thanks for the help guys! YOU ROCK!

Yes, the techniques I show in the DVD will work with ANY crusting BC you like!

Now on that note; like some of the gals said, if you happen to have a recipe that crusts way fast, or is not "forgiving", you may not get the results I do.

But the smoothing principles are the same whatever the recipe.

Sharon, could you give me an estimate on shipping time? I've ordered from you before, but I dont remember how long it took! I want to order boxes and bows and a few tools, but I'd need them by Thursday! (Im in Houston, so not too too far from LA)

Mine arrived quite fast and I'm in Oklahoma City so yours maybe faster.

I use half shortening haf butter buttercream recipe and worked just fine,
I think it helps a lot if you use any crusting buttercream without as many air bubbles as possible.

I'm just an occasional baker, so I always quickly review the BC dvd before I ice a cake, sort of a refesher course, and always catch something I forgot.

You'll love it.

LOL, I do the same thing...and I'll do it with the Boxes & Bows dvd, I'm sure. Sharon has put so much into that dvd set, I know when ever I get to do a box cake, I'll have to have it going while doing the cake. The good thing is...she'll be doing it as I do it icon_biggrin.gif

God Bless,
Sharon

I LOVE my BC DVD. I used the techniques on my husbands B-day cake with a significant improvement noted in smoothness, even though I felt clumsy at first! I have some questions....
Is it ok to put in the creamer liquid hot-right out of the micro, such as 170 degrees or will that mess up the shortening??
The full batch of icing was to much for my mixer, so 1/2 way through I had to split it-guess at the liquid, etc. Pretty much a big mess. The icing is stiffer than I would like. Do I heat the liquid again when I try and thin the icing a bit more?
I cover my cake boards with freezer paper usually & while smoothing the icing, I noticed the cake getting pushed this way & that. Would putting a dab of icing under the cake before I start prevent this, or do I need to cover with something else??
Thank you for sharing your knowledge and talent!!

I have been waiting for an insurance settlement for almost 2 years - well I finally got it! When we knew it was coming my husband and I were talking about what we were going to buy - my husband says, I really want a new truck, I said OK. He said "what do you want" and I said "All the Sugarshack DVDs"!!

I ordered them before the money was in my account!! I am SO GLAD that I finally got them! I learned so much and I was so excited to do my cake this weekend with everything that I learned.

I am going to go back and watch the buttercream video again and I am going to try her recipe too!!

I just wanted to tell Sharon - THANK YOU!!!! you are totally AMAZING!!

you will get faster!

i use it just a few minutes after it comes out the micro, so it is HOT

what size mixer bowl to you have? there are many versions of the recipe here on the site to fit different bowls. and yes you can thin with more liquid.

I cover my cake boards with freezer paper usually & while smoothing the icing, I noticed the cake getting pushed this way & that. Would putting a dab of icing under the cake before I start prevent this, or do I need to cover with something else??

icing should do it!

Thank you! and thank you evryone else for all the nice words. They mean more than you know.

I honestly cannot say enough about each and every one of my SugarEd DVD's!!! I watch them from start to finish when I first get them. They make great reference, for when you forget or don't do a technique for a while. I learn something new and invaluable each time I watch them. Keep up the good work Sharon!! Thanks for everything you put into them.

Thank you for your response Sharon. I am not sure what size mixer I have-I thought 4 qt?? It is a 300watt ultra power. The head tilts up. A gift from an ex boyfriend (1 thing he did right icon_razz.gif )
Where do I find the scaled icing recipes for your icing?? I get so overwhelmed at all the unrelated results I get when I do a search!

Okay, I have to add my praise for Boxes and Bows and ESPECIALLY Sharon's AMAZING customer service. I ordered my DVD last Sunday (via email) and received it on WEDNESDAY.
Sharon went out of her way for me several times that day and had my package in the mail on the same day I ordered it (after changing my order a couple of times!).
I also have to add that her prices on the "tools" are AWESOME! I looked in the cake store at a few of the items I ordered and they were WAAAAAAY more.

LOVE all of Sharon's DVDs. They are so easy to follow. And yes, her response time in mailing her products is phenomenal.
