In this cake decorating tutorial, I demonstrate how to create delicious pale buttercream that still tastes great! This half vegetable and half butter recipe is great in warm conditions. Enjoy!

In these video tutorials, I normally use Bakels Premixes to save on time. (Bakels is a bakery-grade cake premix. Another great one is Allied Mills)

I use these butter based cakes above because they are sturdy under fondant and stable at room temperature, as are the muds.

Thanks, guys for watching! This so far has been my favorite recipe for buttercream- although it doesn’t work too well under fondant. Granted I have done it a few times, and while it has actually worked, it does produce more blemishes and makes it hard to achieve those perfect sharp edges. An all-butter/crusting buttercream would be ideal under fondant, or a ganache.

I hope this has been useful for you guys! Let me know your thoughts if you try this, I would love to hear your feedback.

Will this work with just crisco? I can’t use butter here in Florida due to cottage laws. also, what works instead of milk (dairy). I can’t seem to get any buttercream mixtures to work w just crisco and no dairy products. I’ve tried everything. 😞 I hope you can help. 😃 I’ve been baking for two years and only had my company since a June 2020. I have my first wedding cake this month! You’ve been such an inspiration to my baking!

Frankly, I haven’t tried it, and I couldn’t tell you if it would work or not.
