shortening
by: Anonymous

My Wilton teacher advised us to use the "store brand" of shortening, instead of Crisco. She said she had always found it worked better, so I have always used it.

Another Recipe to try
by: rsarchtct

Here's another recipe for you to try, I have recently taken to using 3/4 lb butter and 1/4 lb Crisco. But have had great luck with it both ways.

awesome buttercream recipe
by: Anonymous

I love the recipe for icing by Crumb Boss, owner of the Woodland Bakery in Chatham, NJ. It's a combination of the swiss buttercream and American- she had the recipe on her blog site and if you scroll down, you can watch a video of her making it. It's better than Wegman's icing. Love it

Crisco break-down
by: Anonymous

I know exactly what Becky means. I like the taste of Crisco frosting, and have long used it - got the recipe from an aunt who decorated cakes - but Crisco's changed formula seems to be what makes it break down now. I have tried alternatives, and they are okay. However, I sure would like to go back to the flavor with Crisco!
