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
here is a thread on the same subject. hth
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
p.s. don't us shortening in your smbc it must be butter (its the best) good luck!
Wow....thanks all....I've learned alot.
