I followed this recipe: Crusting Buttercream Icing
these are the ingredients:
2lbs powdered sugar
1/2 cup of butter
1 1/2 cups solid vegetable shortening
1/3 or 1/4 cup of water ( I used 1/4)
2 tbsp clear vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. almond extract
So I mixed everything fine...the texture looks good... BUT it's way too sweet!!!! This is for a cupcake cake for kids...not sure I want them to eat the frosting the way it is.
Is there anything I can add to the frosting that is already mixed to make it less sweet but still taste good???
