What is your Buttercream Icing Recipe? - Page 4

You said your Buttercream was too thin. You did not "Whip" it enough. I always use this recipe for decorating and have never had any problems piping it. Try it again, but whip it for a good 4 minutes. Also, make sure you are only using 6oz of cream, the other 2 oz should be used if your frosting is too thick.

Here is mine: It's a take off of Earlene's that I have tweaked to get what I like:

1 (8 oz.) brick cream cheese, softened
3 cups Sweetex (hi-ratio)
3-4 TBS, flavoring (Ms. Sandra's Wedding Bouquet or Magic Line's Butter Vanilla)
2 tsp. popcorn salt, whisked with 5 lbs. Powdered Sugar
6-8 ounces whipping cream

Cream together the cream cheese and Sweetex with the paddle until fluffy. Add flavoring, beat until combined. Add half of the powdered sugar and half the cream on stir speed until combined. Add the remaining PS and cream. When combined, turn up to 3 or 4 and let her go for about 5 minutes. Crusts beautifully and pipes well. The ratio of fats/sugars to the cream cheese and whipping cream act as a preservative per baking911.

I've gone through this thread and noticed there aren't many recipes that don't have shortening.  Do you have to use shortening for butter cream, can you use butter instead?  I just want butter cream to cover my cake before covering in fondant.

I use an all butter butter cream, it's called Swiss Meringue. Lots of different recipes out there, just google around. From Scratch SF is a good one.

I just use the recipe that's been on the back of the C&H powdered sugar box since before most of us were born. All butter.

Oh, and hand-mixed, with an ordinary dinner fork; not whipped. I grew up with dense, hand-mixed frosting, and I like my frosting dense.

I haven't been on this site in some time. I've read through this thread, and planning to try some of these recipes for my daughter's baby shower cake. Thank you all so much for sharing your recipes.
