So, I pretty much use IMBC exclusively however, there are the odd occasion where a customer requests American. Well, I have yet to meet an American Buttercream that I like UNTIL TODAY!

I made some mini cupcakes for my daughter's first day of school and, decided to give this recipe a try since a) it was for 6 year olds and they LOVE uber sweet and, I wanted to get them done in a jiff. Well, I was pleasantly surprised at how great it was. I still LOVE me some IMBC and, would never change but, this recipe was at least tolerable and, didn't give me that sweetness headache that I always seem to get from ABC.

I made the recipe as posted and, didn't take the reader's suggestion to cut the lemon juice in half.
