I ws looking at the Indydebi crisco based buttercream icing and was wondering Is it 1&1/3 cups of crisco or is it 1/3 cup of crisco?. I really need to try it on a cake due this weekend.

I'm dying to try indydebi's recipe. Is it ok to use for frozen buttercream transfers as well? I'm going to make a batch this weekend.

It's easy, delicious; and an absolute dream to work with. I made a wedding cake for my niece in July, and it held up to the heat of a 90 degree day! I'm impressed and highly recommend it icon_smile.gif

OK so I made a batch of this stuff tonite. I must confess that I do not particularly like buttercream and have never had any requests from customers for buttercream icing. I frost all my cakes in Pastry Pride but have recently began to make frozen buttercream transfers. I must say, that once I tasted indydebi's recipe, I realized that this is a really good tasting buttercream. And my FBCT came out flawless! If I ever do get a request for buttercream, this is the one I will definitely use. Thanks indydebi for a great recipe! thumbs_up.gif

Regarding the Indydebi buttercream, if I have to ice the cakes the night before, is it better to let them sit out or refrigerate overnite? I am making my first attempt at a wedding cake, and have to transport to the mountains the morning of the wedding, so I want to have as much done the night before as possible! Thanks!

I never refrigerate my cakes. The only two times I had icing problems was when I refrigerated the cakes. I always finish my cakes in their entirety the day before delivery. They sit on my counters the whole time.

Do you store this frosting the same as all the buttercream?

In the fridge? on the counter?

What does the Forum Matriarch Indydebi recommend?

I have a question...IndyDebi, First...i LOVE your recipe and your blog! I get so many compliments on it.

My question is you use Crisco in your recipe. I just purchased some Hi-Ratio shortening, can i use that in place of the Crisco, will it work the same?

Thank you in advance!
