I have never seen this in a post, but I just discovered this product called Brite White. It is suppose to take the greasy taste out of the buttercream icing.

This is what is on the label. Brite White, Use 1 Tablespoon per 1 Cup Crisco. Ingredients: Vegetable Shortening (Partially Hydrogenated Soybean and Cottonseed Oils), Citric Acit, Sugar, Nonfat Dry Milk, Wheat Starch, Salt, Corn Starch, Emulsifiers, Dried Egg Whites, Artifical Flavor. 1 lb (.454 kg) $3.59

Okay, wasn't sure if this was gonna work so I used it on two cakes for family parties and it was two totally different groups of people. I actually had people at both parties come up to me and tell me that they never liked icings because of the after taste/greasy taste and that they found this icing did not have any. I actually never eat icing because of this and I found that it did not have that greasy taste.

You might be wondering where to get this and all I can tell you is that I found it at a small cake store in my town. I noticed that in small print it states that it is Packed by Targil Seasoning, Opelousas, La 70570

Has anyone else heard of this?

Yeah, I have some but I won't use it. It has transfat and I no longer eat products with this in it.
I also never get a complaint that my frosting has a greasy feeling, but then again I do not use Crisco either so that may the reason why.

Just wondering where you are located? I agree the crisco makes things greasy, but without it my icing would be a puddle on the board ! One of the joys of living in Louisiana! icon_lol.gif

I think I've seen the product at the Party Time in baton rouge, I've never bought it, but ill definitely give it a try now!

I use Spectrum Organic shortening. It is expensive. At the price I can get at my local grocer it is the same price per ounce as LOL butter.

Icing/buttercream bases have been discussed for several years: icon_lol.gif

dldbrou, if you're closer to Lafayette (that's where I am), there's a new cake supply store near Michaels:

Not as big as Targils, but if you just need something quick, it's better than driving up there. She also has pre-made cascades of sugar flowers really cheap!!
