Im looking for a whipped buttercream icing. All i rememebr is it has crisco and made in two major steps. anyone have a link to the discuccion about it in the forums or the recipe? TIA
I posted one but I'm not sure if its the one you are looking for....? It uses evaporated milk and alot of shortening and butter.
Is this the one you are looking for?
Whipped Cream Buttercream
1 lb. Posdered sugar (sifted)
2 1/2 cups crisco
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 TBSP Meringue powder (add 1 additional TBSP for slight crusting)
1/2 cup BOILING water (less 2 TBSP)
1 TBSP vanilla (or flavoring of your choice)
Part one... put crisco in mixing bowl and gradually add powdered sugar. Beat about 5 minutes until mixture is very creamy and fluffy. Set this aside.
Part two... In a very clean bowl mix dry ingredients. Add BOILING water and immediately mix on high speed. Beat until stiff peaks form, about 8 minutes. When mixture begins to get stiff add flavoring.
NOW combine both mixtures and beat together for another 8 minutes. When finished, use a rubber spatula to down beat a little to remove some of the air bubbles. Frosting will be very light and creamy. Cover. DO NOT REFRIGERATE.
This frosting may be kept at room temperature for 3 months. Whip with a spoon each time you use it, to restore fluffiness.
