I am so excited to have this recipe. When I vacation in Florida I always shop at publix.., I can't wait to try this frosting! THANKS, KIMI!

Interesting. When I learned to decorate cakes, the buttercream I practiced with was all shortening, no butter. Does this leave a oily film on the roof of your mouth? I'm guessing not with the rave reviews. Still, a lot of the ingredients are the same in my practice buttercream.
