American bc recipe that calls for a little cake flour ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Anyone heard of a regular American Buttercream recipe that calls for a LITTLE cake flour, which I believe, lessens the sweetness of the buttercream?

Here's a recipe from my cousin who has made cakes for 30+ years. She lives in a very hot/humid southern state and says this holds up very well.

Ricki's Crusting Buttercream (high-heat, high-humidity)
1 cup + 4 TBSP water
2 cup Crisco (use high-ratio shortening if you have it)
½ tsp popcorn salt
1 tsp butter flavor
1 tsp almond extract
2 tsp clear vanilla
8 tsp meringue powder
4 TBSP cake flour
1 cup corn starch
4 lb. C&H sifted powdered sugar
The recipe above is a double batch. Any leftover icing will be ok in the fridge/freezer.
