Just when I think I've got my ABC mastered, I learn something new to tweak it. What started as a simple BC recipe has morphed into a completely different recipe :) I had no idea you could add whipping cream to it! Do you use heavy or light cream? Or does it not matter? Does it change the texture of the frosting? Ooh so excited to add this to my recipe!
I've used heavy whipping cream in my icing for years. It makes the icing a little richer. I heat mine up so it blends better with the butter and sugar. You can add as much as you want and whip the daylights out of it and make it really fluffy. That's how I make my icing for cupcakes.
AnnieCahill: this sounds delicious. Does it still crust in the American Buttercream?
I'd like to try it and make another 'camo' cake.
I added the whipping cream to my buttercream for my SIL's baby shower cake (still working on it...). OMG, yum! And I learned a new trick I wanted to pass along. To get my BC silky smooth I add another batch I made earlier to my mixer until the BC is even with the top of the bowl, set it at med-low and let it whip away for about 8-10 mins. It reduces the air bubbles, I think, and comes out perfect for smoothing on the cake! Don't know if anyone had posted that earlier, but I was impressed it came out so well and wanted to share
Yes, but the most recommended paper towel brand is "Viva" and I can't get it here, so I sometimes use parchment paper instead.
ps: I think there are photo and video tutorials on how to do it.
