In order to decorate deliciously pretty cakes, you need the perfect buttercream. This is a recipe my mom gave me and I use it every time I decorate a cake with roses or other details. It tastes great, is easy to work with and a cinch to color. Here's the recipe!
The Best Buttercream Icing
2 cups shortening
1/2 cup heavy cream
8 cups powdered sugar (one 2-lb bag)
1/2 cup (one stick) softened butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
Beat shortening until smooth. Add butter and cream until fluffy. Add 1/4 cup heavy cream and vanilla. Mix well. Add sugar slowly and continue mixing. Slowly add remaining cream until right consistency is reached.
Makes enough to frost a 9-inch 4 layer cake or a large cake made with two cake mixes.
