Great "road map" of a buttercream recipe, easily manipulated to accomodate any and all of your buttercream needs whether it's for cookies, cupcakes, or decorating. Thicker, thinner, more butter, all shortening, play with this till you get it to suit you. In this case I reduced the almond flavor by half and it was just the perfect hint of almond. Overdo it and the flavor is unpleasant and overbearing. I wanted this frosing to pipe onto cupcakes so I nearly doubled the powdered sugar called for and addded half and half until I got the thicker consistency I wanted.

Not only good on cookies, but great on special occasion cakes. Make it al little stiff and you can create decorative flowers and borders with this recipe. Linda Carver-Hereford,Texas

I didn't really use shortening.. I just cut it out of the recipe and used whipping cream instead of milk.. it worked really good..
