You can't have it be bright white... it just won't do in the flavor department. If you think it tastes like butter... add more vanilla and it can transform it into a different thing altogether. I have never had anyone say that my BC tastes like a stick of butter.
I know that somepeople mix SMBC and PS based BC together... maybe that will be your happy medium?
I guess it doesnt have to do with anything other than the fact that I a just dont love the butter flavor.. But even with high ratio, I wont eat it. I just cover my cakes so they stay moist, but I much prefer to eat a cake with no frosting.
My favorite frosting ever is the 7 minute frosting, based in eggwhites. Is like marshmallow heaven. And I could eat it from the bowl
I do agree with you, you have to satisfy your costumers, and that's where it boils down too.. When people ask me about recipes I always say to them, remember everybody has a different taste for what they like, so look for what you enjoy eating and go for that.
We had people go to the shop and ask for a whole vegan wedding cake,or a sugarless one. But they forget that not everybody is vegan or has issues with sugar. So then they decide to do kitchen cakes for those special situations, instead of making everybody eat a vegan cake..
By the way...I still miss your old name!!!!can't get used to the new one!
