    Kay Demonbren's Note:

    This recipe is from Colette Peters, in a wonderful book called Cakes To Dream On. This is one of the many recipes I tested when making my daughter's first birthday cake, and this is the best buttercream I've ever tasted. While still very buttery, it doesn't feel like you're simply eating a stick of butter. Awesome buttercream, you must try it!

      This is the ONLY buttercream icing I will use. It is the smoothest, creamiest, melt in your mouth dreamiest. Just finished my cousin's wedding cake and the frosting was perfect! Thanks so much for posting Kay!
