The Perfect (Foolproof) Buttercream Recipe?

Pandora | Mar 9, 2011 11:24 AM

I looked at some of the previous posts on making buttercream, but frankly can't handle all the variations (American, decorator, more sugar, less, etc.). Does anyone have a foolproof buttercream recipe that is easy to make? Here's what I'm looking for: Not too sweet, not gritty, no raw eggs involved, and easy to use to decorate a cake. I'm open to shortening if needed, although I have tried to avoid that in the recipes I've tried so far, but maybe that's the problem...

Thanks in advance.
