So I made a cake today. I used a buttercream that consists of shortening, margarine, and 10X mainly. I've used this frosting plenty of times, but have yet to figure out something that will help it withstand the humidity/heat a little better. I managed to deliver the cake just in the nick of time. I managed to get it into the fridge right away, which helped it to set back up. Whew!
Anyway, does anyone know of any tricks that would help this frosting withstand the humidity/heat a little better? If I can't figure anything out, I'm going to have to limit my customers to my other frosting during the summer months. TIA!
The best buttercream. Ever.
And down here, we know all about heat and humidity
I'm definitely trying that! Thanks!
also , try sugarshacks buttercream. you can see her making it on youtube... she uses hi ratio shortening.. which is great for humidity.. hth
Ditto on the Sugarshack recipe. I do not use anything else now. It holds up in 95+ heat AND humidity - I am a firm believer in it!
Sugarshack icing here also.
My computer weatherbug says 101 right now!! Nice...
I'll be making a cake for next weekend that will be outside for a childs party. Hopefully they'll eat the cake before it sits out too long.
