The Perfect Crusting Buttercream

I use this recipe when making my rose cake, my hydrangea cake, or any cake that I want the frosting to be able to hold its shape! This makes quite a bit, but can be refrigerated quite easily. And yes, I sometimes use half crisco/half butter.  This recipe is SWEET.  Super sweet.
