I'm a hobby baker and hope to have my own business one day. Anyways I got tired of people knocking off my buttercream and saying that hate cupcakes bc frosting is too sweet. I agreed bc even though I have the highest tolerance for sugar, I find myself taking a sip of milk after each bite of cake or cupcakes. I started significantly reducing the amount of powdered sugar and adding a little instance pudding for flavor....helped firm it up too. Also had success with mixing in a generous amount of whipping cream, whipped cream, and Wall Marts whipped cream frosting to regular buttercream. I have won over every person who wont it cupcakes bc of the sweet frosting...and those who do like it super sweet. Yes it can still be piped too. I wanted to share some of my tips since Ive already received so much help here.

Please excuse all my typos as it's difficult to type on my phone.

Thanks for sharing icon_smile.gif seems a nice way to flavour the BC too. Have you put a recipe in the recipe section we can try out?
