Hi All,

I am just starting to decorate with buttercream (because I prefer to use fondant as I find it much easier) and I am wondering how you all manage to get your buttercream a lovely white colour. I live in the UK and ours is always creamy colour definately not white. Would you be kind enough to share with me how you get such great white colours please?

All shortening recipes are all white if u use real butter it will have an off white color. I use butter extract to achieve the butter flavor.

If you add a dot, or 2, or violet gel/paste color, the BC will turn a lovely white.

Sorry I am not quite understanding what you mean by 'shortening' what exactly is this? It is probably something we have here in the UK but known as a different name. Many thanks for your replies so far.
