I am changing my previous review rating , this icing deserves 5 stars! It taste just like the bakery buttercream icing that I love so much! This recipe will always be my go to recipe when I want a buttercream icing. Perfect taste, texture and consistency. Easy to follow recipe too. Kudos to the poster!

Very good and has great texture for piping! Very thick and the right constancy. It tastes really sweet, but hey buttercream is supposed to be sweet! I made it with the 'Simple White Cake' recipe on Big Oven. Perfect combination!

I hate to say it but the icing came out tasting like powered sugar and crisco to me. It was ok but I won't be making again.

Was great. I added some Hershey's cocoa to make a chocolate buttercream icing.

I'd put less butter, more crisco.
