Is there any way to get buttercream, IMBC or SMBC white? I know I can use shortning for the buttercream....but the other receipes for the IMBC ane SMBC all use butter. This leaves a yellow tint to my "white". What am I missing? I want nice smooth WHITE frosting on my cupcakes.

Thanks in advance

If you add a few DOTS of violet gel/paste color, it will cancel out the yellow and you'll get a nice white.

For white white icing, I use Bright White food color by americolor.. It always makes it wonderful and snow white. I haven't heard of adding violet, thats interesting..I may have to try that! Hope this helps icon_smile.gif

p.s. don't us shortening in your smbc it must be butter (its the best) good luck!
