i don't use salt.....

for the confectioners sugar, what kind are you using? the best is 10x dominoes confectioner sugar. the bigger the number, the finer it is....

How long are you mixing it? The longer you mix it, the smoother it gets. And don't cut the salt, but use popcorn salt (a very fine grain of salt making it easy to dissolve in your liquid).

This is the recipe i use and sometimes i have to add a touch more milk. I get lots of compliments on how yummy it is and it is very easy to work with!!!!!



Buttercream Icing


2 lb. powdered sugar

1 cup shortening

½ stick marg. or butter opt.

¼ cup powdered coffee creamer

1/3 cup water or milk if shortening has no trans fat

2 teaspoon flavoring 1 teaspoon vanilla 1/2 teaspoon butter 1/2 teaspoon almond

Dash of salt



Put all ingredients in mixing bowl. Cover bowl and mix on low speed (this is so powdered sugar will not fly all over the place). Uncover bowl and beat on #4 speed for 5 – 7 minutes. Add water if the icing is too stiff. Add powdered sugar if the icing is too runny. If you use milk as your liquid, remember when the milk expires so does your icing.



Chocolate Buttercream – Add ½ cup cocoa powder or to your liking. Some like more chocolate than others! Chocolate always require a little more liquid. I prefer vanilla flavoring with Chocolate Icing, yummy!!!!
