Julie's less-Sweet Buttercream

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Anyone tried this? The recipe says it is crusting, but none of the ingredients seem to indicate that. I thought you needed cornstrach and egg whites for crusting? So, I was wondering if it would really crust up like the White as Snow recipe. I was also wondering how it pipes. THANKS!! icon_biggrin.gif

This is my recipe and yes, it crusts very well, just like a Wilton BC. Also, it pipes very nicely; use more powdered sugar for a stiffer consistency. I really like this recipe and it is what I use for my standard buttercream. Just a note, I use salted butter.

Hope you like it. Let me know!

I checked out this recipe and it sounds like one that I might try (easy). I have tried different buttercreams and they just never turn out right.

Can you make this into chocolate????

Yes, just add about 1 c. of cocoa and of course, more liquid.

Thanks Julie - I'll try it!! One more question - do you think this will work well for a frozen buttercream transfer? icon_biggrin.gif

Yes, this is what I use for a FBCT

What makes a buttercream crusts is the sugar to fat ratio, that is what I have been told several times.

I'm so glad to hear it. I really enjoy it as well! I've changed my flavoring recently; I've been using 1 T. plus 1 t. vanilla, 1 t. almond, and 1 t. lemon extract/flavoring. Less of a pronounced almond taste.
