thanks for helping.



So is that 4 cups of confectioner's sugar? and 1 cup of Crisco? Try using unsalted butter (not margarine) instead of the Crisco.

Well, I have offically thrown out my Wilton Buttercream recipe and I will be using IndiDeb's from now on... It tasted much better and fluffy.. No greasy aftertaste..
The cupcakes looks really great and I feel much better about the buttercream..
Thank you all of you for your help and post..
Hope you have a great weekend!!
