Fluffy Bakery Style Buttercream Frosting

Hey My Folks, Love You All!!! I Found Another Recipe. This One Is A Fluffy Bakery Style Buttercream.


Ingredients

1 1/2 c. Unsalted Butter, Softened

8 oz cream cheese

1 c. Vegetable Shortening

8 c. Powdered Sugar, Sifted

2 tsp. Vanilla Bean Paste

1 tsp. Salt

2 tbsp. Milk

1 to 2 tbsp. Light Corn Syrup

Instructions
Using a stand mixer with the whisk attachment, whip butter and shortening together until light and fluffy -- about 5 to 7 minutes. Butter should be white and the mixture should be airy.
Add powdered sugar, milk, vanilla bean paste, salt and corn syrup. Mix on low until combined. Taste the frosting and add additional salt or vanilla bean as needed.
Return mixer to medium-high speed and whip the frosting until it almost doubles in volume and becomes light and fluffy -- about 7 to 8 minutes.
Frosting is done when it is fluffy and forms soft peaks when you pull a spatula from the bowl. The frosting should stick to the back of a cake spatula. If not, add a 1/4 c. sifted powdered sugar and whip again until fluffy.
