If you like more of a whipped icing, then this may be for you. Although it's good and everyone enjoyed the cake, I'll go back to using my fav icing recipe Click here: Decorator Buttercream Icing Recipe : Recipezaar as I do not prefer whipped icings. Thanks for the trial run.

I thought I had already found the perfect icing recipe until I tried this. I used it to decorate my daughters birthday cake and it was the best! Easy to make! I did leave out the almond extract as I am not an almond fan. Thank you very much for posting!

My daughter and I decided to make a professional looking birthday cake. We used our favorite choc. cake and this frosting along with my own choc. icing and cream filling. We managed to pipe this frosing and were happy with the reuslts. Kept the cake in the fridge for 2 days. I used all butter and opted out of meringue and flavorings except vanilla, delicious. Not greasy, a little sweet, good to work with.

I've been making wedding cakes for 6 years and this is by far the best buttercreme recipe I have come by. I will use this now exclusively. I used the butter and the icing did come out a soft ivory color , if I need a bright white I will use all shortening and more clear butter extract to make up for the flavor. Thanks for posting !

This is an amazing icing! I had two wedding this summer - had to make over 300 cupcakes and this is the icing I used. I upped the meringue powder a little as they had to travel in a car for 2 hours. Easy to decorate with and they taste so good. Everyone loved the icing. I used only the vanilla flavoring as some people have nut allergies. Added cocoa powder for chocolate icing - absolutely perfect!! Thanks!

I have looked forever for a delicious buttercream. They always seem too sugary and shortening like. This was the perfect consistency and flavor. I won't make another buttercream and I certainly won't use store bought again.
