These days, people seem to use Buttercream & Frosting interchangeably. While they’re used similarly, the difference between frosting and buttercream all boils down to one ingredient with a big impact: butter.
Frosting normally contains shortening or cream cheese. That’s why frosting is a good option if you want a bright white cake. Buttercream often has a yellowish tint because contains butter. We love making buttercream for our Nifty Nozzles, the genuine Russian piping tips. When making buttercream, consistency is important, either if it’s for covering a cake or making buttercream flowers.
