Absolutely beautiful, I've never in 30yrs of making and decorating cakes made such an incredible butter cream, i followed your recipe and i couldn't believe how easy and quick it was !!!.it looked beautifully silky and smooth and the taste was so very different from ordinary butter cream, it wasn't too sweet and it just melts in the mouth !!!...anyone wondering if they should try it, please do, you certainly won't regret it, that's what I'm going to make from now on !!!...thanks you so very much Xxx 😊☺😉😍💝🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂

+Marietta Barbara Itliong mine was too runny also, I refrigerated the condensed milk for almost 2 hours, and as I started to mix it it looked like it was trying to separate. Not sure what I did wrong trying to salvage it and put it in the fridge, hopefully that helps solidify it.

I tried and it was a soupy mess!! Not sure what I did wrong. Is it possible to overwhip? Or can the shortening and butter be too soft?

fudge brownie (27 days ago)
I'm sad this didn't work out for me. I don't like the taste of this frosting. Followed it, but the taste of frosting with shortening had an awful aftertaste. My family didn't like it. I had to make a new batch of frosting without shortening. The texture may be nice but the taste is not for me. 😭 It's just my opinion though.

just made it it was too loose and started to from what it looks like separate flavor is good though note** I did not chill my condensed milk overnight I chilled it for just an hour or two in the fridge, also this is not enough to frost a layered cake double the amount

Osephinejay (1 month ago)
I'm sorry but this was a complete fail in my house. It tasted like straight butter. I found myself adding powdered sugar to give it some other taste. But nothing worked. It was also very loose (even after I added another half cup of shortening to try and thicken it) and ended up with the frosting falling off the first dozen. I ended up throwing this all away and making a different recipe.

Hi! I tried this for my cream cheese frosting but it turned out runny. I added 1 bar cream.cheese to the recipe but too runny. How do I revive it? Or is it hopeless at this point? Please @mortarandpastry help! Thanks so much!
Lennie Watson (19 days ago)
I want to try this recipe however I need a substitution for the sweetened condensed milk. I'm diabetic and I am learning to redo a lot of the cooking I have been doing. I have been using Swerve sugar substitute for cake and brownie recipes. What can I use to substitute for the sweetened condensed milk?

They don't make it with hydrogenated oil anymore, it's not that bad. It's literally VEGETABLE shortening, not petroleum.

Would you use cocoa powder to make it chocolate flavor? I guess using melted unsweetened chocolate would melt the butter/shortening?

I'd like to try this recipe, since some of my family does get tired of me using the confectioner's sugar butter cream frosting on my cakes all the time. I think this will be a hit, if I use it on every cake I make from now on, especially since I'm using color to add something special as well! Thank you for sharing!

Hi LOVE this! Thank you Just wondering with it being a can of condensed milk would it/the cake need to be refrigerated or is it good to stay at room temp? Thanks in advance x
Mortar and Pastry (1 month ago)
Hi! It's good on room temp and can stand over a long period, unless you will be storing it you can keep it in the fridge for about a week :)
Laura Defilippis (1 month ago)
Can this be made ahead of time and stored
Mortar and Pastry (1 month ago)
Hi! If you will be storing it you can keep it in the fridge for about a week and just let it soften and beat again for a few minutes before using :)

You got me with the title and lost me at the VEGATABLE SHORTENING. Are there any substitutions?
Im A Mistake (7 hours ago)
+m 11 ... why? Here, we even made frosting with just shortening. Thats because we couldnt afford expensive butters. But it tastes alright? And this recipe has only a tiny bit of shortening too... Yeah we live in a 3rd world country if youre wondering.

Ana R nothing stabilizes buttercream like shortening
Mortar and Pastry (1 month ago)
Hi! You may replace it with more butter instead. I just added a bit of shortening to make it more stable for piping :)
Lilli Mantilli (1 month ago)
Do you have to refrigerate the cup cake or. Cake after frosted? Where do you get hi ratio shortening? Thank you.
Danielle Douglas (1 month ago)
so no sugar?
Mortar and Pastry (1 month ago)
Hi! Yes, no sugar was added to this recipe. Sweetness will be coming from the sweetened condensed milk. However, you may still add powdered sugar if you want it a bit more sweeter. It makes easier to adjust for the desired sweetness :)
I'll have to try this one for sure! My favorite is Swiss meringue buttercream and I have a recipe up on my channel, but this looks like a lot less work.
+Mortar and Pastry do you mind if I do a recipe review on my channel? I would, of course, give you credit for the recipe and link your channel as well.

is this recipe stand for a room temp?
Mortar and Pastry (1 month ago)
Hi! Yes it's stable and sturdy enough to withstand in a room temp for a long time. Just make sure you use cold but soft enough butter and chilled condensed milk and add enough shortening for stability :)

iheartthissong (1 month ago)
This is used in south america a lot! Grew up eating it. It does not do well in hot weather so make sure you keep it in a cool place or else it will melt. A trick so it does not come out rynny is to use chilled ingredients and I also chill my glass bowl where I will be whipping my icing. Is so yummy.

This is the only recipe I use when I want a buttercream. Everyone loves how smooth and creamy it is. Not toooo sweet, either. For the haters of shortening. Visualize!... its 2018, and things are refined, better, safer, healthier; AND, its not like you are going to be eating large gollops of shortening with every bite. Think about it, it thins out to be very little. Its there for support to the icing. Reading these comments makes me chuckle, its ALL in your head!
