Hello every one this might be trivial to u, but I'm baking cupcakes for my Girl's Bday tomorrow and I want the perfect buttercream recipe, I tried 87437 recipe and ppl complain that it is too sweet and they can feel the icing sugar crunching in their mouth, what I love about buttercream is how it holds the shape and easy to use, the other day I tried meringue buttercream, excellent in taste but very light i can't draw or make shapes with it! any idea pls?
I'll be happy to share with you my buttercream. It's not on this site but it's a great recipe and holds a shape very well.
I can't remember if I can post it all since it came from another site but PM me if you would like to try it.
I'd LOVE the recipe, but I'm new to this whole forum thing and can't figure out how to send a private message. HELP!
Athoora-you may want to beat your frosting longer. I started filling my mixing bowl all the way to the top, and let it mix for an extra 5-10 minutes. Makes a world of difference.
Kim-Will you PM me the recipe? I'm always looking for something new.
Tanya-Welcome! See the button under each post with two people and it says PM? Just push and you should be able to send a private message!
I had the same problem w/ a new bc recipe I tried the other day. I could feel the grains of the icing sugar. I thought it might be the brand I was using since it was different from my usual...do you think mixing it longer would help?...I would love the recipe too mgigglin!
kim could you please!!!!!!!!! e-mail me your buttercream recipe ...i have try alot of recipe but not what im looking for thank you soooooooo much
Athoora, I've used the Buttercream Dream recipe on this site and it's really good.
I think you can post the recipe, you just have to give credit to the site you got it from or you can post the link to the recipe.
I have used Sugarshack's, SeriousCakes, Indydebi's and all a super...they all are easy and delish. I caught DH with his fingers in them all at one time or another...just kidding. He would rather eat boxed brownies than my from scratch Martha recipe, so I don't know WHY I trust his judgement and he can't make up his mind on which one he likes better!
