I have made SOOOOO many buttercreams - and I just want to know if there is one more out there for me to try! I am making cupcakes tonight to be delivered in the morning and I want to make a beautiful buttercream swirl on the top that melts in your mouth! I found one on Pinterest I could try......but wondering if anyone on here has one that they highly recommend for a cupcake swirl!
Thanks so much!!

Thank you so much kakeladi -- this was WONDERFUL!! Just what I asked for.. smooth beautiful swirl and melt in your mouth delicious!! Thanks again! And I highly recommend people try this frosting!! I saw it had some reviews where people did not care for the frosting - and I didn't use this on a cake, I can see how it would be a bit soft for that - but this is PERFECT for cupcakes!! icon_smile.gif

This is almost identical to the recipe I use, except I only use one cup of shortening, add a bunch of salt, and use two tablespoons of vanilla extract with hot cream to thin. Everyone loves it.
