Creme Shortening - A light coloured shortening. Animal / vegetable blend for mock creams and icings. Use as a butter replacement in traditional buttercream recipes.
For basic Mock Cream: combine 500g creme shortening with 375g sugar using a whisk attachment. Slowly add up to 250ml water to acheive preferred consistency. Whisk for approx 10 minutes on medium to high speed. Add optional flavouring.
Shortening based buttercream is perfect for use in hot climates, when you need stability or are after pure white buttercream.
Shortening simply replaces the butter that you would traditionally use in buttercream. The higher fat content ensures that your piped swirls on the cupcakes stay exactly how you piped them. Ensuring your buttercream is perfectly white prior to colouring means that the final colour is not skewed by the yellow colour from our Australian butter.
