AI am trying to decide which buttercream to use. I typically favor pure buttercream over American & European buttercreams. I sometimes do 1/2 butter 1/2 shortening but it's not really my favorite. I recently made Wilton's White Buttercream mix I think it's called; & I LOVE the flavor & texture. But it is $3.99 for a box that only covers a 1 layer 8 in cake. So I'm asking what it is your customers like best? Pure butter? 1/2 & 1/2? Pure Shortening? Ect..

I've forgotten exactly how much it will cover.  I'm rather sure it will  easily do the cupies and the 8" cake.

*As general rule* you can figure on each pound of sugar used in making icing will cover any one recipe/box of cake.  In other words if hte cake you make used two (or double) recipes or 2 box mixes, then the icing recipe as given will be ample to ice and decorate it.

Hello Guys as per my knowladge in a 5-quart mixing machine add the butter and using a exercise connection, gradually defeat in the sugar.Add salt,vanilla flavor,and buttermilk and defeat to until a little bit firm. You can modify the reliability by including more buttermilk, if you want a smoother frosting. This is a base icing frosting flexible to having substances added for your own tastes.Thanks a lot!!
