Looking for a great buttercream recipe? Then you have come to right place. Watch this how to video to learn how simple it is to whip up some butter cream to decorate your cakes with.
The ingredients for this recipe are:
22 tbs salted butter, softened (about 3 sticks)
2/3 cups Crisco shortening
5-7 tbs heavy cream
2 tsp clear vanilla
2 lbs powdered sugar (about 8 cups)
1-3 tbs corn syrup
You may need more or less liquid depending on the weather. If it is very hot and humid outside, add less cream. If it is very dry add more. The corn syrup doesn't add to the sweetness of the frosting, but it does add elasticity to help keep the frosting from cracking and adds a nice gleam to the cake.
