I made 1 batch and it was really yellow so I made another and didn't use vanilla extract but it is still too yellow. The only thing I can think of is it's the brand of butter I used (Target) but I don't know. Is there any saving the buttercream I've already made and how do I get white buttercream? This cake is needed on Sat. so I don't have too much time to figure this out. Thanks!
You need to either use crisco (or any other white vegetable fat) in place of the butter or use a paler butter.
To save the buttercream you have already made, add a little bit of violet food colouring. A little at a time until you get the right shade. The violet cancels out the yellow.
The violet trick always works for me. Just add it a dot at a time.
You can also use a product called icing white, you can find it in the cake isle of your craft store
Violet huh? That is interesting, I have to try it. Me thinks I'll send the hubby to Michaels to pick up the violet and the icing white. They sound like 2 good things to have on hand. Oh, he's gonna love me....I sent him there yesterday too (it's close to his work). LOL! Thanks guys!
