Here Comes The ... Best Wedding Cake You'll Ever Eat

My friends Mollie and Paulie are finally getting hitched.
I said Mollie, what would you like for Rosie and I to do for your wedding (Thinking she was going to give me a list of songs to sing). She said that she wanted us to make the wedding cakes. I said Wow... Okay. So I started giving her a list of all the wonderful ideas, like Chocolate Torte with Strawberry Filling. Fresh Tangerine Cake. Blackberry Jam Cake. Honey & Cream Cake... etc.
She said Nope. I want White Cake, Chocolate Cake, and Lemon Cake with White Buttercream Icing. To which I said... No problem. and Here's why...

Bright White Buttercream is a great decorating frosting with a heavenly taste.

This frosting has a lighter taste than the shortening free Butteriest Buttercream, spreads easily, and is stiff enough to form lovely peaks. An easy decorator frosting that’s great for novelty cakes.


* 8 oz (2 “sticks”) room temperature butter
* 1 cup shortening
* 1 tbsp plus 1 tsp clear vanilla extract
* 7 cups powdered sugar (approximately 2 pounds)
* 6 tbsp milk
* <1 drop blue liquid food coloring (optional)


(See below for addition of food coloring directions.)

1. In one bowl, thoroughly cream butter, shortening, and vanilla.
2. Add one cup of powdered sugar and one tablespoon of milk. Beat thoroughly at medium speed.
3. Repeat step #2 until you have added all of the milk and powdered sugar.
4. Beat for an additional 3-5 minutes at medium speed.

Yield: Approximately five cups of frosting.

  1. I felt that the baking powder taste was a little too much, so I tweaked it by adding just a pinch of Almond Extract. It worked perfectly.

    The Buttercream recipe calls for the tiniest bit of blue food coloring to add to the contrast of color to make it white. I think I added in a tad bit too much, because the icing had a green tint to it, but then as I spread it on the cake it was "Perfectly White"... even whiter than MY Teeth!
