Smooth icing without powdered sugar but no eggs?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I don't like the icings with powdered sugar, due to the grit. But I don't like the ones with eggs... Is there a recipe that uses corn syrup or cooked sugar syrup, but no eggs? And doesn't get crusty? I know there is the one with the cooked flour and sugar, beat with butter, the Wilton one. Is there a better one? It is so soft, it doesn't make good defined swirls. I need it to firm up, a bit, and the "French vanilla" that Wilton has doesn't firm up, uess you refrigerate, then it gets HARD.... Is there one that will firm up a bit without refrigeration, and is super smooth? That has to have at least half butter, with small amounts of icing shortening.

I get raves about mine, but I think it could always be better. I use half shortening and half butter, with real milk, and powdered sugar, and flavor. I whip it for 10 minutes or more, with a paddle in my kitchen aid. It is very smmoth looking, but with a handful of grit.

That's true... But it sure would be expensive! Wonder if you could whip it with butter?
