If you'd like to try Italian Meringue Buttercream, I suggest watching this tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxWmiHRTMz8

 

If you want to try Swiss Meringue Buttercream, here's another: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uBBoRMWcfNc

How about an ABC?  2 of everything is simple and delicious.

 

2 cups butter

2 cups shortening (Crisco)

2 Tablespoons flavoring (can be any you want or combination, which is highly suggested)

2 pounds powder sugar.

 

*Nothing else * is used in this recipe.

 

Cream butter & shortening well - up to 10 minutes.  Add about 1/3 or the sugar; cream 10 minutes; add another 1/3 of the sugar and the flavoring; cream 10 minutes.  Add remaining sugar and cream another 10 minutes.

This is a NON crusting recipe.

If you need/want it to crust, just reduce the butter OR Crisco by 1 cup OR reduce *each* by 1/2 cup.
