White As Snow Buttercream

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
For those of you who have tried this, what is your opinion? I am just looking to experiment on new buttercreams and this caught my eye but I would appreciate some feedback on it before I try it. It will be used for a 2 tier cake for my daughters birthday in one week. Thanks.

Well, what are you looking for/expecting with this buttercream? I haven't used it, but maybe someone can help you if you let them have more info on what you'd like to know about (i.e. it's taste, ease with decorations, etc.)
Why is it that the first time you do research, it is re-search, rather than just search?

Well, like I stated in my post, I am looking for people's opinion about the buttercream. I am not "expecting" anything from the buttercream, just was curious as to what others think about it (ie. their opinion), thought that was pretty self explanatory. Guess not many people have tried it?

Are you asking about the Wilton recipe? If so, I've tried it and I like it. Keep in mind that I don't like frosting, so some people may REALLY like it.

HI patton78! It's one of the recipes that I posted...and it's my favorite all shortening buttercream recipe. I don't like to use Crisco in it...I find Crisco has a very greasy taste, I use the wal-mart brand and it's wonderful! The recipe has a excellent crust and pipes beautifully.

I hope that helps, if you have any questions just let me know thumbs_up.gif

Hmm, that is interesting...the WalMart brand is not soo greasy feeling?? I would like to experiment with an all Crisco recipe but I just am afraid because that just sounds soo gross and I DO NOt like the Wilton Class recipe that calls for all shortening, that really tastes like grease. I mentioned experimenting with an all shortening recipe to my husband and he got this gross look on his face and said "people have to be able to eat it." This White As Snow Buttercream sounds really interesting so I guess I will never know till I try. I live in very humid weather with hot summers so this would be perfect! Thanks for the input.

Hi Patton!! I promise, it's much better with the wal-mart brand shortening...Crisco is just way too greasy for me!! It does hold up very well in the heat and humidity!!! thumbs_up.gif

Be sure to let me know how it turns out for you.

bobwonderbuns, you can find this recipe under the recipe section on this site.

denise2434, thanks for all your help. I am hoping to experiment with it soon, I have yet to find the popcorn salt that is need although I have only checked one store so far.

Sometimes the popcorn salt is sold where the popcorn kernals are sold (not in the spice section!) icon_confused.gif Make sure to get UNflavored popcorn salt - they do have different flavors of it.

Is popcorn salt a finer grain or more coarse like Kosher salt? Can a regular salt be substituted?

Yes, I know that regular salt can be used instead but I have heard that the popcorn salt is the "secret" to making this icing taste great. I am assuming because the popcorn salt is slightly buttery. I would really like to give it a try!

I find my butter flavored popcorn salt with the other spices at the grocery store...It's made by McCormick. They might even have it where the popcorn is located.


Here is the link for the recipe:
