Has anyone ever had issues with Indydebi's buttercream not crusting? I've been using it for a while and never had any issues, and suddenly the last two batches seem to have a more whipped consistency and will not crust. Anyone have any idea why?
I had that happen when I bought the store brand of shortening and it was much softer than real Crisco.
Thanks, but I realized what I did, both times. I think I deserve the "Bonehead of the Year" award! I've made it enough times, that I don't look at the recipe anymore, and about half the time I double the recipe. It suddenly occurred to me that I doubled everything in the recipe except the powdered sugar! What a dork I am! I scraped it off, added more powdered sugar, and then it worked nicely. I still can't believe I did that!
You're NOT a bonehead!!
I love the fact that you posted this for all of use to learn from your experiences!!
I have two stand mixers, but I learned a LOOOOONG time ago that I don't have enough heads to concentrate on both mixers simultaneously...... I was never able to do anything right with both mixers fired up!! ~~~
Yup - It happens to all of us at some point!
LOL, Thanks guys!
