Made this frosting this morning for a very special cake, my son's going away party (heading to Fort Benning, GA next week). After reading several reviews and personal preferrence I made a couple changes. I used sweet cream butter instead of shortening, omitted the salt, changed the sugar to 6 cups (my husband doesn't like super sweet frosting) and used between 5 & 6 ounces of heavy cream. WOW!!!! This is the best buttercream recipe I have come across, way better than anything I've had out of a bakery. I used about 1/2 cup of the frosting, thinned down with cream, to use as a crumb coat...worked perfectly. I know I changed the recipe, but I still give it 5 stars...was a great recipe to work with. =-)
