How to make Brite White Buttercream
What you are creating:
This icing will create super white buttercream with the use of the Brite White Icing Base.
Makes Approx: Small Batch
Place water in mixing bowl. Then add powdered sugar, mix with a paddle until all lumps have dissolved. Scrape bowl well.
Add flavors and mix.
Add Shortening and mix.
Add, Brite White and mix until light and fluffy.
Note: This is a softer buttercream icing than most. Vary the amount of water depending on weather conditions (hot weather, add less water).
You may vary flavors for desired taste.
Emulsions vs. Extract
Emulsions have a more potent, robust flavor that will not bake out. They are alcohol free.
This buttercream is not quite as sweet as most American buttercream’s. It also does not crust over as much as standard American buttercream.
Since there is less crusting this means that this buttercream is less likely to crack......very important point.
This buttercream does have a slight orange flavor due to the orange emulsion. However you can use any flavor emulsion or extract you want.
