How to make Buttercream Frosting like an expert


Butter-flavoured or Golden Crisco (solid vegetable shortening) 1 cup
Sugar (powdered) 4 cups
Salt teaspoon
Vanilla extract 1 teaspoon
Heavy cream 3 fluid ounces
Food colouring (gel or paste) – optional

Method of Preparation

Add shortening to a bowl and cream until fluffy. Add powdered sugar to the shortening and continue creaming until well blended. Now add salt, vanilla, and cream. Blend well with low speed until moistened.

For achieving the right consistency, you can add one teaspoonful of additional cream at a time and mix well. To get a fluffy frosting beat at high speeds and if necessary you can break the frosting into several small portions in small bowls and beat. Add food colouring to create variations of buttercream frosting.

To get more variations, use clear vanilla and white shortening for a white frosting. For a more whiter frosting, use real butter holds up well at room temperature and use cup white shortening along with cup unsalted butter.
