I used this icing for my daughter's firt birthday and it turned out great!! The consistency was just the kind i needed... I loved that it smoothed easily..
is it true that buttercream icing with butter in it doesn't turn out white? I was told to never use buttercream recipes with butter in them, but the recipe I use now is just the wilton class buttercream recipe, it has no butter, but I'm just not that crazy about the taste of it, way too sweet and sometimes has a crisco taste to it...do you have trouble with this recipe not being very white?
Same question as ChristieS8... Is it sort of yellow or can you get it really white?
I use butter and crisco in my buttercream and it does not have a yellow tint...I will get a ivory tint if using vanilla extract.
you can get clear vanilla extract to avoid the tinting
