Earlier this week I found Indydeby's Buttercream recipe...I finally got a chance to try it out. I love it...the texture the taste the way it covers a cake. It was a little sweet but I know next time to add a little salt...but I'm glad it was sweet because my Satin Ice isn't schedule to arrive until Monday...(didn't order it early enough) So I had to use Wilton's Fondant. Before when I used Wilton I kneed flavor into the Fondant...but didn't have time to do that today. However, I used more icing underneath the fondant to offset the taste. I only wish I had found this buttercream sooner.

Thank you Indydeby for sharing thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gificon_biggrin.gif

Conchita I'm not sure what you mean by "soft" However, I will say it is very smooth. The recipe I was using before was hard to make roses. However, With Indydebi's buttercream They pipe so smooth No jagged edges...

Here's the link to the recipe

Oh... okay Just add more milk. I wanted mine thinner because it was going under fondant and the more milk I add the more it had a whipped consistency. It's very light & one of the best things I like is that it does not require Meringue I don't have to change recipes if someone has an egg allergy

TY for sharing the link!!

If you want your BC to crust less use a lower end shortening. It took me forever to figure out why my BC wouldn't crust - I was cheaping out on the shortening! LOL.
