Hello I hate the taste of butter in buttercream. Has anyone tried using margarine instead. I use margarine for everything because of taste. Is this possible or not. I don't want to waste my ingredients on something that won't work. Thanks!
I have read old post about this topic and all I see is don't ever use butter period. Most say because of "taste"
I'm not concerned about taste I want to know about consistency.
i always use margarine as i also don't like the buttery taste, mine has always turned out great
AI think you should try different butters as they all have different tastes,salted aswell as unsalted. I've tried making buttercream with margarine unfortunately the consistency was too runny,so now I stick with butter as it is more solid.
AI actually gave it a try last week and I was very happy with the taste but not with the consistency might have been the margarine I used. It was hard to get on the cake it felt too oily like. Slippery almost and I was not able to make a border with it . I guess I have no choice but to use the butter. I might try it again with a different brand margarine.
AMaybe try adding some flavourings to the buttercream so it won't be so noticeable,margarine is a vegetable spread rather than actual butter so it tends to be more oily like but good luck anyway!
