I need a good recipe for Brown sugar buttercream. My IMBC recipe works well with brown sugar, but isn't stiff enough for good cupcake swirls. I need a stiffer recipe for some apple spice cupcakes. Can I adjust my IMBC somehow?

That's strange. When I make IMBC (incl br sgr) it makes gorgeous cupcake swirls. Maybe it needs more butter?

I use Shirley's method for IMBC and it makes wonderful cupcake swirls. Take a look at her recipe and compare to yours to see what is different. I just started using IMBC recently so I'm no expert on it.

Thanks. Mine called for only 2 sticks of butter, so that's probably it. I'll add some more and see how that works out. thumbs_up.gif
