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 😊☺😉😍💝🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂

Is there a substitute for the shortening?
helpfulnatural (23 days ago)
+Mom_of_3 boys I make Swiss Meringue buttercream quite often for my cake business and it contains shortening to stabilize it as well as making it sturdy enough for decorating. As long as there is more butter than shortening in the recipe, you will not taste it. Many grocery stores that sell decorated cakes use recipes that contain all shortening as it is very stable and far less expensive than butter to use. But it tastes awful and the texture is greasy. Hope this helps. :)

I found this recipe myself by accident. I was out of cream so I used condensed milk for the buttercream frosting and it was wonderful. Great to work with.

Could you add cream cheese to this recipe anybody???
Trish Hill (23 hours ago)
+Chazzy Cake thank you!!! I'll try it!
Chazzy Cake (1 day ago)
I don't think it would hurt it, I would probably sub the cream cheese for the shortening and make sure it was really softened. Also I would refrigerate it after icing the cake.

Made this today. Used 2 drops of neon pink liquid food dye. We covered the cake with some then we added 6 more drops of that same dye to the remaining cream concoction in the bowl. Rewhipped then we grabbed it and piped some decorations on top of the pale pink and it colored a brighter pink no issues of change in consistency. It piped beautifully! I ( cough cough - and by that I mean my daughter) covered an 8" cake then piped decorations on half the cake. Everybody like the taste of the buttercream. Thank you for sharing. God's blessings to you and your family.

Evone (3 days ago)
Will... I had high hopes as this looked and sounded delicious. I just made this a few minutes and it came out wonderful and creamy but tasted like sweetened condensed milk and butter.:( It has a very slight sweetness I mean very, very slight. I thought maybe if I added a little powdered sugar that I made into a syrup might make it taste a little better ... It did not it just tasted like sweetened condensed milk but a little sweeter. Sorry I really just didn't like it at all and I had my son taste it just to be sure it wasn't just me but he didn't like it either. I feel like I just wasted a whole pound of butter bummer:(

AwesomeCakeDesigner (12 days ago)
Thanks for sharing, but please advise which vegetable shortening to use. I thought Crisco might be too soft. I’ve noticed that you’ve avoided this question before.
Can you use oill instead of Shortening?

geetika tondon (14 days ago)
Hello! Looks like a great recipe. If I make a batch of this buttercream a couple of days in advance and refrigerate it, do I have to mix it again with the hand mixer before piping on the cake? Hoping for a reply :-)

hello, what if I'm gonna use powdered shortening since this is the only available in our area, what will be the measurement?
SashanaForever69 (15 days ago)
This buttercream looks absolutely delicious. I’ve been testing out frostings and have had a hard time because I absolutely despise powdered sugar. I’m going to try this one this weekend. How long can you keep this out of the refrigerator for? Is it still as stable under fondant? 😊

El Dela Cruz (27 days ago)
Emily Velazquez, with all buttercream recipes, if it become liquid or soupy, put the mixture in the fridge for a couple of minutes then beat it again on high for couple of minutes then it should fluff up.

I tried this recipe. It didn't taste sweet enough, so then I added powdered sugar and that made it too thick so I added water and that kind of ruined it. I have to try it again maybe my measurements were a little off. I hate traditional buttercream, it is too sweet and not easy to decorate with

I’ve made this frosting before and it was wonderful. I used it to make hydrangea cupcakes. It piped beautifully. This last time I made this frosting it wasn’t stable. Don’t know what happened? I wasn’t able to pipe rosettes with the 1M tip. Any possible reasons as to why it wasn’t stable?

It's better without the shortening. Vegetable shortening (Crisco) leaves a greasy feeling on the roof of your mouth that is very undesirable.

Would this work for a wedding cake in hot humid Florida Summers? It seems like it would melt since there is a lot of butter and no confectioners sugar to form a crust.

Hi! I have some questions, 1. Gano po sya katagal before mag melt? 2. Pwede po ba bawasan yung condense milk? I want to add some cocoa powder po kasi, baka tumamis masyado. 3. Wala po bang after taste yung shortening? Thank you! 😊
