I am wondering about the cake images in the photo shown with this recipe. Are the cakes shown here truly frosted with buttercream? These cakes have very white frosting that looks more like royal icing than buttercream. Is it possible to get buttercream that white? Normally the butter turns the frosting a slightly yellowish hue.

I'm surprised this recipe has such a low rating. It is one of the best frosting recipes, especially for wedding or special occasion cakes. It it amazing for piping and for holding up in a cake that needs to be on display for several hours. I know several people who make wedding cakes who use this recipe and consider it one of their favorite. We had a cake tasting and used this frosting and some of the cake got left out overnight. The frosting still looked amazing the next day.
