continue to add sugar until it is the consistency you like it.
It's so creamy this way for me....and it goes on beautifully....crusts to the touch, but not as hard as a recipe with more crisco, I think.




I tried this recipe yesterday and it will be the only buttercream I will be using. Thank you so much adven68 for posting this icon_biggrin.gif

Hi, just found this site, desperate after failing with two different yellow cake recipes, neither of which rose. Used fresh ingredients, measured and mixed as directed, baked until toothpick came clean. Where can I find your recipe for no fail yellow cake? Thanks much!

This sounds awesome!  About how much powdered sugare do you use.  I love Sharon Zambito's recipe, but I usually don't ever need that much buttercream at one time. icon_smile.gif
