This recipe was made from trial and error. I made two mixtures of buttercream. One with salted butter which was too buttery (salty) and one with unsalted butter which was still too sweet. So I combined the two and it became the best buttercream Ive ever tasted. I use this recipe for all of my cake orders and it is a hit every time!!!
1 stick butter (unsalted)
1 stick butter (salted)
1 cup shortening
2lb bag of confectioners sugar
3 teaspoons clear vanilla extract
5-6 tablespoons of milk (cold)
Cream butter and shortening. Add clear vanilla extract then add confectioners sugar. Allow confectioners sugar to blend well then add milk. For thinner consistency, add more than 6 tablespoons of milk.
I use this recipe ALWAYS and love love love love love it. I don't use vanilla though...I substitute other flavors too.
I mix it with italian meringue. It melts in you mouth this way.
