My favorite paring for this icing is wedding cake! I 1st made it with a dreamsicle cake and it was heavenly! It’s my absolute favorite icing recipe…It tastes buttery with out any butter flavor. It stands up well in heat and is easy to work with.
This is a white buttercream. Add color to surprise your guests!
- 1 1/2 cup shortening (or for higher temps 3/4 c. shortening, 3/4 c. high ratio shortening)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp butter flavor
- 1/2 tsp orange flavor
- 1 tsp Creme Bouquet flavor
- pinch of popcorn salt
- 5 tbsp whipping cream

- Cream shortening until there are no lumps. Scrape down and add all flavors and salt and cream again.
Add cream and half & half and blend on low-medium until all liquid is incorporated.
Add powder sugar 1/2 bag at a time and scrape down well. Beat for several minutes to make for creamy and less gritty.
Add more or less half & half depending on the consistency you need.
