Very good and very sweet!!! It spreads easily and it's lovely to work with. The recipe made a generous amount. I don't think it has much of a butter flavor at all though. I followed the directions as they were given.
Excellent! I used a spreadable canola oil/butter blend instead of the shortening and butter, and its very easy to work with, colour and decorate with. I used it for a Lightning McQueen molded cake and had leftovers for cupcakes. Thanks for the winner recipe!
I was getting ready to post this recipe, and found this! This is my absolute FAVORITE buttercream icing recipe- none of the other recipes (even with 50+ ratings beat this! It's even better the next day!! Thanks! :)
Used this to decorate a Dora the Explorer birthday cake. Very easy to decorate with and taste great.
I used this icing while taking the Wilton Class. My class called for all shortening, but I preferred the taste of this half and half recipe. Thank you!
Coming back to rate this and I was SHOCKED that this will only be the 2nd! This icing is outstanding! Simple steps resulting in amazing flavor! Thanks for sharing!!
Perfect icing. My children will not eat an all butter icing-too rich-but this one has the perfect flavor and conistency thanks to the half butter/half shortening. And I use a vegetarian shortening and its tastes great. I dumped three batches of bad icings made from other recipes till I found this one. From now on, this will be the only recipe I'll ever use.
