Also if anyone has a good standard frosting recipe that is NOT buttercream let me know! I love Kroger's light and fluffy frosting but cannot duplicate it yet and unfortunately I loathe buttercream. Thank you!!
Try Italian Buttercream and Swiss Meringue Buttercream. It's not traditional shortening bc's. I think you'll like them. You can also try the Roux Icing recipe left here as well.
Butter will break down if it gets a little warm whether that means the heat of your hands or the heat in the room.
Are you using meringue powder in your recipe? Are you using regular table salt? Those are culprits of the dreaded "white spots."
Also happens when I'm mixing in colors, holding the bowl in my hand. It always seems to be heat for me that melts it and that makes the white spots or streaks.
(I use all Crisco and that too must have something to do with it. Most of the time I forget the Meringue powder and I always dissolve the popcorn salt in the liquid.)
