I was looking for a great buttercream recipe for my husband's birthday, and I think I found it! I followed the other suggestions and used 1 1/2 C. butter and 1/2 C. shortening. But, I did add more vanilla extract. My only problem with this frosting was that it got gooey and warm really quickly. (and my kitchen was quite cool) If you are using it to frost and decorate the cake, I suggest you put the frosted cake in the fridge while you are preparing the icing for decoration, i.e. tinting and placing in pastry bags. I didn't keep the cake in the fridge and the icing practically melted off the cake as I served it. Otherwise, it was a wonderful recipe!
