OK... I have always used margarine (blue bonnet) for my buttercream icing...it had a great taste and everyone loved it. Well, I went to our commissary to get the stuff I needed for the baby bootie cupcakes, and they actually had stick land o lakes butter. I said what the heck I will try it. WOW WOW WOW WOW what a tremendous difference. I now know the reason why I had to keep putting my margarine made frosting bags in the fridge to get the firmness....its the margarine....well with the butter made frosting, even when it got "warm" it came out great...and the taste was different. I didnt think it had much of a difference until this morning after it sat over night .... its great! So yeppers I will only use butter for my frosting....I may even have to start using it on toast to see if the taste has changed since my earlier years......
