How to Make Butter Cream Frosting Fluffy

post #1 of 15

I would love to know the secret to making buttercream frosting very fluffy and thick, like the grocery stores. I have a great tasting recipe and simply cannot make it that fluffy, no matter how long I mix it..........

There's a recipe on this site for "Whipped Cream Buttercream." I think this is exactly what you're looking for. Since I discovered the recipe I've made 3 batches and everyone loves it! icon_biggrin.gif

Thank you. Is this good for piping also?

Whipped Cream Buttercream is vey good for piping, I love to do roses with it. Here are two pictures of my cakes done in that frosting.

The taste is very good not too sweet.

I pipe with it too. If you look at my photos, I used it on my Buckeye cake and the Miffy cupcake cake.

I put three TB of merengue powder in mine, let it sit a bit and you can use a viva on top to get it really smooth. Very little presser with a fondant smother on top of the viva towel.

I just looked up this recipe. My goodness, it say's NOT to refrigerate. Also, it says that it can be kept at room temperature for 3 months???? Has anyone ever kept it out at room temperature for a long period of time? Any idea what happens if it is refrigerated? Hmmmmm, this is interesting. I know that it doesn't have any butter or milk in it but 3 months unrefrigerated seems like an awful long time. What has everyone's experience been with this? Thanks everyone....

I love the stuff! It tastes really good! If you look at my photos, there's one cake where I left it "fluffy" and used pink flowers and another (preemie cake) where I smoothed it and piped with it. Give it a shot!

Choco Mama- How did you get your baby shower cake so smooth? I use Viva paper towels on my regular buttercream, but have been afraid to try it on the whipped cream buttercream.

sissy - I use Viva on my cakes. I waited a bit for the frosting to crust a little but, for me, it was more difficult to smooth than regular BC. Actually, I got it pretty smooth using just my spatula.

icing - That's the right recipe. icon_smile.gif

I agree with butternut's concern about the refridgeration. I was thinking of using on a cake tomorrow however it will have a banana cream filling so the cake will have to go into the fridge....anyone tried that? If so, how did it affect the icing?

I have refrigerated mine on a cake overnight (because I didn't want my black frosting to bleed onto the white) and had no problems at all.

Has anyone tried this icing recipe using butter to replace some or all of the Crisco? I'd be curious to try it if it were not an all-shortening icing....
