This is Serious Cakes'  Buttercream Recipe... This is the one I use.  Everyone loves the taste of it and it crusts nicely.


Buttercream Frosting

Ingredients
22 tbs salted butter, softened (about 3 sticks)
2/3 c. shortening
5-8 tbs heavy cream
2 tsp clear vanilla
2 lbs powdered sugar (about 8 cups)
1-3 tbs corn syrup

Instructions
Cream together butter and shortening until smooth. Slowly add 2 tsp. vanilla and 5 tbs. heavy cream. Gradually add the powdered sugar and scrape down the bowl very well once it’s all added. Slowly add more cream and corn syrup a tbs at a time until frosting reaches desired consistency.

Yes, it's exactly the same.  I add peanut butter after it's been all mixed up.  I think I use about 3/4 of a cup of peanut butter.  Just depends on how much peanut butter flavor you want.

I LOVE THIS RECIPE! Also you should post the peanut butter one! Best peanut butter buttercream ever! If Im remembering correctly its the same only you add peanut butter right?
Depends on  how much liquid you add.  I usually start with 5 tablespoons of cream.  Then I don't add any more liquid to the end after I see how thick it is.   When it's really humid I may not need to add liquid at all.  You just have to figure out what works for you.

Just read the reply to my qns!!!!!!!! LOL.

Is it a fairly firm(thick) icing?

I just saw on Facebook... Mr. Serous Cakes posted that she will be out indefinately.  Not sure what is going on or if she just needed a break from this crazy business but whichever... she will be missed while she is gone!
I am so sad to hear that...I wish for the best for her & will miss watching her videos & advice.
I saw that, too, Jeri.  I'm not sure what's going on either.   She will be missed.

I hope she is O.K. I'm Concerned. Whatever it is-  praying for her and her family to get through the circumstances and to get back to what she loves doing.

I am hoping she just needed a break and is taking a vacation.  I know it can be overwhelming sometimes!!! 

Hi there,

 

I was just looking for new BC receipes and came across this.  If i want to make oreo buttercream or cookies n cream, can i use this receipe and just add in crushed oreo coookies?

 

Any thoughts??

Meera, Sounds like a fun idea.  You won't know until you try it.  Be sure to come back to this posting and do tell exactly how you loved it!

You can do anything you want when it comes to icing and cakes.  It will be fun to see what you come up with.

Have fun!
