I have another problem I use a IMBC, but I can't get the icing any more than a pale off white ivory is there any way to get this white? I tried using whitener but that just separated out of the frosting making a huge mess. Are there other IMBC's that are white or is that just the nature of the beast? Thanks!!

It depends on the color of the butter. The lighter the butter, the lighter the color of the icing. IMBC usually has an off-white cast to it, it's the nature of the beast.

If you're really hard-core about it, you could make your own butter using whipping cream, but that would take a lot of time if you need a lot of butter!

i am defiantly not that hardcore! icon_smile.gif Is there such a thing as white frosting that doesn't taste like sugar? I have had no luck with any good frosting recipes at all.

Any icing that has butter in it is going to be slightly off white, but I always tell people that and explain why...They don't seem to kind when I explain that pure-white icing is usually all crisco and no butter. It also depends what it's put up against, Some icing will look more or less off-white if it's next to an ivory or a white tablecloth, or if the light in the room is darker or lighter, for example.

Long story short, I don't worry too much about the color and nobody complains that the white wasn't pure white.
