Look vs. Taste: The Buttercream dilemma

Problem with Pure-Butter Buttercream is that while it's delicious, it's never going to give you that crisp white look that the shortening-based "buttercreams" have. The ECG has tried everything to make her buttercream white over the years. Liquid Whitener gave it a funny texture, and that "tiny drop of violet" trick just made the butterceam look grey. So the ECG did what the ECG does...she whined and moaned and pouted. Then she put on her big girl pants and dealt with it. You'll be happy to know that she's found the perfect solution, is sharing it with you, and is wearing underpants.
It's easy! Add one TBS to a pound of your favorite buttercream. The ECG uses this whitened buttercream whenever she pipes buttercream flowers too! Start with the whitened buttercream and tint to any desired color for bold, opaque buttercream flowers that look as pretty as the ones made with shortening buttercream, but taste soooo much better!!
It can also be added to any Royal Icing recipe to create opaque Mesh Stenciling Royal Icing!  Keep scrolling for a quick video of it in action!  Or get yours now.  It comes in two convenient sizes:

Be warned, it doesn't dissolve in Swiss Meringue Buttercream, but try our recipe below (don't skip the Yummy as Hell Flavoring) and you'll never go back to the fuss of making SMBC again!
