    Perfectly smooth buttercream frosting with paper towel!!! Additional info: Add a tablespoon of meringue powder to Wilton's buttercream recipe with shortening to get a really white buttercream that crusts after about 15-20 minutes. I have never had the buttercream stick to the paper towel using this recipe.
