Hi all, I had a question about SeriousCakes buttercream recipe (which I got from Arti Cakes), which is as follows:
22 tbs salted butter, softened (about 3 sticks)
2/3 c. shortening
5-8 tbs heavy cream
2 tsp clear vanilla
2 lbs powdered sugar (about 8 cups)
1-3 tbs corn syrup
Cream together butter and shortening until smooth. Slowly add 2 tsp. vanilla and 5 tbs. heavy cream. Gradually add the powdered sugar and scrape down the bowl very well once it’s all added. Slowly add more cream and corn syrup a tbs at a time until frosting reaches desired consistency.
Now Arti Cakes swears by this buttercream and if you've seen her flower cakes on FB, you'd understand why I want to use the same. My question is that since this was a recipe developed in the UK, is there a difference in TBSP measurements for US measuring spoons?? I read somewhere recently that UK TBSP. 22 TBSP (UK) = 27.5 TBSP (US). Is that true? Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!
