I asked about their buttercream icing.
Crave's co-owner said that buttercream is the base for most of their icings. It's just whipped butter mixed with powdered sugar. Flavorings like chocolate might be added to the mixture, but icing flavors will always start with their standard buttercream.
They get it.
Some commercial bakers make their buttercream icing with shortening.
Buttercream icing made with solid vegetable shortening, is, well, not buttercream.
