Can anyone suggest a recipe for really white buttercream!
Also, a brand you had luck with for food color pens, I can never find ones that write really well, and really fine. Thks.
inydebis is white! what ever recipe you use (even butter will get very pale), just beat it for ages, and use clear vanilla, should make it as white as it can be - and i think wilton sells icing whitener too if you want.
I have tried several icings..if you use one with butter I suggest using Imperial butter..it does seem to keep the icing MORE WHITE!!! I got the tip on here..of course with my humidity I only use Indydebi icing now! LOVE IT
Using an all-shortening recipe is your best bet for white icing, but if you prefer to use real butter in your buttercream, check out the dairy section at your local healthfood store. They often carry butter that contains no dyes, so it will help prevent your icing from getting the yellow tint.
A TOUCH of purple color helps counter the yellowish color.
For my white/white icing I use Indydebi's recipe.
amarilloyankee Imperial makes "butter"? The only Imperial around here is margarine...not butter.
