Thanks for the tutorial! I don't have popcorn salt but I do like to add salt to my icing. What I do is take my pinches and dissolve them in a teaspoon or 2 of hot water and then add it in with my vanilla.


Love this recipe I have that's the only buttercream I use it's work's very good for me I live in the US Virgin Islands and nothing else work's better for me.

It was smooth but I could not get past the taste. Like I dipped into a can of Crisco. Sorry, will be ditching this recipe


On my last visit to the US, I took some hi-ratio shortening back with me. It makes this frosting even more amazing. I love it! I've never achieved such a beautiful consistency in a frosting. Ingredients do matter!

For those who don't like the taste, I would recommend playing around with the flavorings. I put in the following: clear vanilla liquid, butter/vanilla essence, cherry essence, almond essence. They are just enough to give a depth of flavor, but it's not like you would think it tastes like cherry or marzipan due to the almond.
