I like buttercream frosting, but it is difficult to make when you don’t have butter! And butter is a difficult thing to store for very long.
In fact, all oils/fats are difficult to store for long periods of time. They go rancid very quickly when exposed to light or heat. I’ve struggled with this in my food storage. I want to store a year’s supply of oil/fat, but I can’t get through it before it goes bad. I was thrilled to learn about powdered butter and shortening. They have not replaced all the oils/fats that I store (I still store some for grilling, stir frying, etc.), but I do use them in baking, and this recipe frosting recipe is one example.
