I'm having such a hard time getting my buttercream smooth, mainly because of all the air that's traped in there. I use the "buttercream dream" recipie found here on C.C. In my K.A I beat the crisco and butter then add vanilla. I add my powdered sugar very slowly, scraping the bowl after every cup, and turning up the speed in between as well. Lastly, I add milk then beat again for a few more minutes. After covering my cake, I use the scrapper and VIVA method and still not smooth, due to air. What am I doing wrong?
