I am so glad that I tried this! After reading the reviews, I made similar changes...and added a little of my own. I did half butter and half shortening...a pinch of salt, 2 t. of clear vanilla and ended up using about 7 c. of powdered sugar. I used the full cup of whipping cream and it was the perfect consistency to decorate and pipe (although, as mentioned, it does "melt" in your hand quickly, so move fast...use small amounts, and/or refrigerate in between...but not too long, because it does harden quickly in the fridge). Okay, my special touch??? I added just a touch of butter flavored extract. It was missing that little "umf" that really makes it "butter"cream frosting. I think that was the key. I tasted it before and after, and that made it...it's JUST like good bakery frosting...and I LOVE BAKERY FROSTING!!! Decorated a barbie cake with it and it did wonderfully. Thanks, Rick!!
