Does anyone have a buttercream recipe that can be used with liquid coffee creamer? But that is also stiff? I found a recipe but found it wasn't stiff and my buttercream ended up being a mess, because I didn't want to add any more powdered sugar and then have it overly sweet. Can any of you bakers please help me out

Thanks in advance.

I’ m Wondering if you just didn’t beat it enough    I’ve never even seen such a recipe much less made it but it sure sounds like it  wasn’t stiff enough because it just  wasn’t beaten well   I don’t drink coffee so don’t use creamer   Is there even fat in it?   Unless you mean whipping cream

If you are replacing cream, milk, water - whatever liquid normally used - with liquid coffee creamer, I see no reason why it wouldn't be as firm as usual.  I would add more sugar.  ABC is sweet, but a little salt will help cut the sweetness.

I second Sandra. I would just replace it with the liquid in the recipe..mine would be milk. This is an interesting thought for a subtle way to change the taste of buttercream, there's so many different flavors! Goodness, I may have to try this!

I use it all the time, it helps add a little flavor. Most of the time I use the sweet cream or white chocolate macadamia nut.

Read the label.  Some coffee creamers, especially generic brands, have a lot of oil in them, which will change the consistency of the buttercream.  Many years ago, a food service brand of coffee creamer used at a lunch counter I frequented used a creamer that had monkeys on the container.  When I inquired about it, the server handed me the container and said, "Read the ingredients."  It had banana oil in it.

Why not use powdered coffee creamer?  It works great.
