Try:

1/2 c. butter
1 1/2 c. shortening
2 tbls clear vanilla
2 lbs sifted powdered sugar
1/2 and 1/2 for thinning (1/4 c to 1/2)
1/4 tsp popcorn salt.

for peanut butter BC use above recipe except change shortening to 1/2 and add 1 cup creamy peanut butter.

Also Indydebi's BC is very good. Do a search here on CC.
