I am having a hard time searching for the perfect butter cream recipe that well crust well since I need to do some scroll on it and eventually paint it.
I used to buy butter cream from a local bakery but now it's turning out way too expensive. Please help!
I still have a hard time getting smooth bc on my cakes but I have to say sugarshacks bc gets pretty hard. I can amen to that, you can get her recipe on here.
Also try the buttercream dream recipe. This is one I posted and it crusts really well. You can always add less tablespoons of milk, water, etc. of most recipes to get the icing to crust.
Hope this helps!
Search for the recipe using the Viva Method. It's the BC recipe I use all the time, and everyone loves it. Crusts beautifully.
Here it is...
I don't understand what people are talking about a butter cream the crust well. I make my own bc with egg whites, sugar, and butter and I've never had it crust. Why do you want it to crust?
We want it to crust so you can smooth it out and decorate properly.
Here is the buttercream recipe: (for it to crust let bc stay on cake for about 5-10 mins)
2lbs. powdered sugar (sugar in bags is finer - no sifting)
1 cup crisco (white lard, not oil)
2 teaspoons stay ice (cuts sweetness)
3 tablespoons princess white(cuts greasiness- gives body)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon clear vanilla or cream bouquet or butter favoring
1/2 cup water
Cream together the shortening, stay ice, princess white, salt and flavoring until light and fluffy. Add powdered sugar and water and beat until well blended. Add more water if needed to be softer, a spoonful at a time. Store in airtight container. Wont go bad if sotred properly. I use this recipe everytime.
