I made some cupcakes for Hubby to take to work today, I just recently switched to using the Butter cream dream recipe, and this was an e-mail Hubby got from one of his co-workers:

I've worked in gourmet bakeries before (in CT, not here) and have had homemade butter cream. This one is seriously one of the best I've had. Not too buttery, not too sweet, not too much, not too little. JUST RIGHT!

Is that the same "Lite" topping they put on store cakes? I have never had it. What does it taste like? Does it crust and is easy to color?

Butter cream dream is a recipe here on cakecentral... I was using the Crusting Viva method BC, and I switched to BC dream which uses both salted & unslated butter--- and Im getting so many rave reviews over the BC dream recipe.

I'm going to try this recipe this weekend on my cupcakes...I was just wondering though, does this buttercream need to be stored in the refrigerator once the cupcakes are iced and decorated?

Yes its a crusting BC recipe, yup to color & piping.

It doesn't need to be refridgerated... Its like any regular Bc recipe, I think they say what 2-3 days outside of the fridge?

I agree with the BCD. I made and it's wonderful. Piped well, crusted well and tasted great.

My husband who is not a fan of sweets even liked it.

I just made this icing last night for my cupcakes. I've been using the icing from Wilton but wanted to try something new, so I made it and gave some to my boyfriend to try. He loved it and asked if he was only going to get one. So I had to go back to my house and get him more. In fact, his friend was coming over and he loved it also. I hink I will be using BCD for a while. thumbs_up.gif

I am deffinately a BCD convert...

I was using the Viva method one that uses only 1 stick of butter & 1 & 2C of Crisco.... I found most people found it too sweet.

Changing to BCD with more butter, and also using the salter butter has gotten rave reviews.
