My daughters birthday is coming up and i need a good buttercream frosting recipe. I dont like super sweet buttercream frosting and i dont like the ones that call for shortning. I like rich creamy buttercream that dont taste like straight powdered sugar. I would love any help i can get thanks icon_smile.gif

This is the recipe I use:

Simple Buttercream

8 cups of powder sugar
1 cup high ratio shortening or sweetex (you can use crisco too)
1 cup butter unsalted
2 tablespoon clear vanilla
1 tablespoon clear butter extract
1/2 cup of milk

**If you sub the milk with a 1:1 (1/2 hot water to 1/2 powdered creamer) flavored creamer mixture, its really good. Especially with Italian Sweet Cream Creammate)

Mix shortening and butter together for 5 minutes on speed 1
Add powder sugar 1 cup at time, continue mixing on low speed
Add milk, vanilla and butter flavoring, continue to mix
