That's exactly why I won't use Crisco anymore. Only hi-ratio shortening for my buttercream if I'm doing a shortening-based buttercream. Otherwise I use butter.

What is brite white? I've not heard of that before.

Brite White is a white coloring that you can add to buttercream to make it pure white.

I use IMBC all the time and I'm in GA. Never had a problem with it melting.

Indydebi's icing:

I use this icing for everything...borders, flowers, strings, icing smooth, whatever. It's really smooth and nice, especially if you make it a few hours or the day before you want to use it. It keeps well at room temp and doesn't need to be refrigerated once the cake is finished. I live in the tropics and this is my go-to recipe. Icing colors work beautifully in this and you can get nice dark colors, too. Don't forget that colors tend to darken later.

OK, next question...where do you get Brite White? I found it online at a couple places - is that the best place to get it?

Wilton does make a frosting dye called White White:

However, Brite White is an icing base (sometimes referred to as white chocolate fudge base):

Other brands of white chocolate fudge icing base are Snow White and Angel White - but Brite White is the best IMHO.

Thanks for all the suggestions!!

I'm going to attempt Indydeb's crisco recipe and hope it turns out. If it does, perfect (since I have another cake to make for Saturday).

If it doesn't work out, then my oldest dd will probably get a store bought cake and I'll either order in the stuff I need or make a drive to the "big city" of Vegas to get everything...provided there is a cake deco shop there somewhere.

Okay, yeah. I was thinking of Bright White which is Americolor's white coloring. http://www.globalsugarart.com/product.php?id=18504&name=Americolor%20Bright%20White%20Soft%20Gel%20Paste


Of course the names for this stuff all have to be really similar, to make it nice and confusing! icon_biggrin.gif
