"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 ..." See moreshortening, 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."
