why is this happening? I made a buttercream using shortening (not crisco,a store brand) and pwd sugar and meringue powder and now after 3 days there is a pool of oil at the bottom of it. Oh well I can't upload the photo so here is the link:

What do you mean by "oozing". Is it coming out from between your layers after you stack the cake?

Sorry about the triplicate post. I don't know why that happened.

Now that I see your pic, I'm not sure why that happens, but mine does the same thing after storage for a day or two. If you stir it, it works right back in and is fine....but now I'm curious and would like to know the experts answer!
