thanks, very kind of you to share your baby :) - cant wait to try this one! How much will this make?
Do you know if this holds up in the summer heat?
It holds up nicely. I make my buttercream almost exactly like this without the salt, and it's fantastic.
Even with the cream this doesn't spoil at room temperature?
@katielb it makes 36oz so probably somewhere around 5 - 6 cups @Claire138 yeah, I haven't had any problems, it's a little on the stiffer side which helps it hold well. I will say tho, I'm from so. california, so I don't know what it's like in high heat high humidity. @astokes2 I've never had a problem with it spoiling, and we use a similar recipe at work that's been lab tested at the request of the health department, and those can be out for up to a week.
Do you mean heavy cream?
Have you or anyone tried this recipe with salted butter, omitting the extra salt?
Does it have to be cream?, can I use milk if I don't have cream? If I don't have creeeeeam?
@TTeddy: I made this on the weekend, and I would think you could use milk. It would just be a little thinner. This buttercream (for me) came out very thick, so I added milk in the next morning when I was doing the second whipping before using it and it was still thick (I didnt want to overdo the milk).
@rbolam: I omitted the salt and used salted butter and it came out fine (it was fairly sweet but I only used a thin crumcoat before my MMF)
@Hlr2482: I wouldnt use Heavy Cream, might end up too thick.
I will be using this buttercream recipe again :) Made about 4-6 cups (i think)
I wonder why my post came up under My2princesses name???
What type of cream do you use?
I would also like to know what type of cream was used and does the buttercream crust at all? I am searching high and low for a smooth all butter crusting recipe. *sigh*
sorry, I forgot to check back for comments. I use regular heavy cream, you can definitely add more if you like a thinner consistency, I just like something a little thicker. @Jojoscakes1000 I hadn't heard of the term crusting until I came on this site, but from what I can tell, it is a crusting butter cream. As it sits, it dries a bit on the outside. @My2princesses I'm happy you liked it.
