Hi there!
We don't use a lot of buttercream here in Oz and im having trouble finding a good french buttercream recipe to do swirls on cupcakes which is for my daughters 3rd bday in August.
I've tried 2 recipes so far which included shortening, butter, icing sugar and milk and it was very buttery and not fluffy at all so it wasn't a success Sad
So is there a good recipe that any of you have tried and happy with that you would recommend?
Cheers Smile

(I OPENED THIS TOPIC UNDER CUPCAKES BUT JUST THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE A BETTER PLACE TO POST IT . I TRIED TO DELETE MY OTHER POST BUT IT DIDN'T ALLOW ME SO IF A MODERATOR CAN DELETE IT FOR ME I'LL APPRECIATE IT. THANKS)
