Hi All.  I recently started making all my cakes for my restaurant after years of buying them from a bakery.  My cakes come out looking great and tasting great but i'm having a problem with the frosting.  The cakes we used to buy were kept in a refrigerated display and the frosting in between the layers always stayed soft.  On my cakes, they get hard.  I use mostly American and Swiss buttercream made with butter.  Is there a trick that bakeries use to keep their frosting soft in the fridge? Thanks

The secret is that you're using butter and the other cakes were probably shortening based.
