Decorator's buttercream refers to a shortening and powdered sugar based buttercream.

Other buttercreams are meringue based using egg whites or yolks, hot sugar syrup, and primarily butter.

There are some other hybrids out there, but that's the simple explanation.

the first time i've seen 'decorator's buttercream' is from the Wilton classes. Their website has their recipe there.
