About this deal
Air bubbles: To avoid creating air bubbles, make sure to use the paddle attachment instead of the whisk attachment on your electric stand mixer.
If you want it even whiter, use half butter and half vegetable shortening (e.g. Trex). This won't give the buttercream the same texture, but it will be a little whiter. It's your call.In my previous post, I shared some tips on how to make buttercream white. Today I’m sharing the perfect White Cake recipe to pair with that white buttercream. Nudge the oven. Gently nudge your oven (assuming it’s free-standing and not built-in). If there is any jiggle in the center of the cakes, leave the oven door closed and bake for a few minutes longer. There’s not a massive difference – I always use unsalted butter in all my recipes as standard, but you can usually substitute in salted butter anywhere, and just reduce any added salt down to nothing. Salted butter makes great buttercream too – I doubt anyone would be able to tell the difference 🙂
Nudge the pans. Open the oven and gently nudge the pans. If there is any jiggle in the center of the cakes, close the oven door and bake for a few minutes longer.
The frosting can be placed in an airtight container and refrigerated for 1 week for frozen for 3 months. Bring to room temp and rewhip before using. Once you have whipped the butter it will be very light and pale, and adding the icing sugar will only make it whiter. Beat it for a good minute between powdered sugar additions too. You can’t really whip this stuff enough.
