I want to use No Crust Buttercream Icing recipe for a Dora Cake and noticed that the instructions call for 1 1/4 sticks (or 3/4 cup) unsalted butter. I'm in Canada and I've never seen butter in sticks only the regular brick shaped version. Anyways, wouldn't "1 1/2" sticks equal 3/4 cup, which means 1 1/4 sticks would be less than 3/4 cups? Sorry to be so anal about this, but I'm new to making decorated cakes and am worried that even a slight difference in the butter amount would make a difference in the end result. Secondly, I know I'm pushing it, but can I use "salted" butter instead of the unsalted? Thanks for any input.
