I have been searching for a buttercream recipe that was light and fluffy but still rich and delicious. Found this one on Allrecipes.com and modified it a bit.
- 1 cup salted butter
- 1 cup of shortening
- 6 cups of powdered sugar
- 1tsp of vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup of whipping cream
Generously beat the butter and shortening until creamy, slow down your mixer and add the whipping cream and vanilla. Add the powdered sugar cup by cup scraping sides between each cup. Once everything is in beat on low for about 10 mins using paddle attachment.
Original recipe used all shortening, 1 cup of whipping cream and 8 cups of powdered sugar.
