Is this possible? If so, can anyone share the secret? I have recently been using the whipped buttercream recipe from Chiara that was posted among all the awesome recipes in the "Gourmet Flavors" thread. I love love love the texture and flavor of this icing, but I cannot get it to smooth. The recipe calls for 1 1/2 sticks of butter and 2 3/4 cups of hi-ration shortening. If I replace the butter with all shortening, would I be ok with flavor/texture and be able to smooth the icing?

So I guess it's not possible to smooth whipped buttercream?

I'm not an expert but some of them can probably help you here.
I have trouble smoothing with any kind of frosting icon_redface.gif
