One day while making butter cream, I was out of milk and substituted soy milk. I did not like the results. The butter cream did not hold together well, and after refrigerating and attempting to use the left overs, the butter cream broke down. It was very watery. I use half and half when ever I can, and Corn Syrup to thin. Like someone mentioned before, I always start out adding smaller amounts. It's easier to add liquid, then it is to remove it from butter cream icing.
