Need a buttercream icing recipe that is simple and classic!

sweettoothT | Jan 26, 200706:35 PM     106

I just took a Wilton cake decorating class to find the joy that I had many years ago when I worked for an ice cream store. Unfortunately, the icing recipe they provide is pretty disheartening and could probably could be used to spackle a wall. Also, it can be shockingly sweet. Of course, I would like to find the ultimate buttercream recipe: easy, bakery-like, light (to the touch...I know it will in no way be good for me!) and hopefully not made w/a cup of Crisco.

I KNOW IT EXISTS!!!
