I've used a similar recipe with good results. Thanks for posting.
okay...... question: i took some wilton classes a few years ago and they said never to use the butter flavored shortening because it causes.... well.......... diarrhea. is this not true? dang! i would have been using butter flavored crisco a long time ago!
Butter flavored Crisco absolutely will not give you diarrhea. I use a combination of white and butter flavored Crisco when I just want a cream-colored frosting. It's a lovely, soft color, and tastes great.
On another note, I never use milk or cream in the frosting. Many years ago, a friend said, "When you do, you take a chance on the frosting souring if left at room temperature for more than a couple hours." Frankly, I don't think the taste is any different than it is with water, and you don't need to refrigerate it till serving time. Though I do freeze the layers while baking, I don't recommend refrigerating a cake after it's frosted. To me, a cake served at room temperature tastes fresher.
How can you use Crisco anyway, It's a pure chemical? Is it not good for the health of our clients?
I have never had a problem with diarrhea using the butter shortning or souring icing,using milk or creamer. Maybe if you live indeep south wih all the 115 degree temp. and no air conditining. Then I think anything could spoil. I never have had a problem. Thankyou for your input.
I always wondered about spoiled frostings with milk or cream and when I decided to look into it I found that there is usually so much sugar content in the frosting recipes that the milk or cream wont go sour. The sugar preserves it :)
