Well, hello there. Welcome to The Cooking School at Irwin Street. My name is Sandy Houdeshell, and I'm going to show you today how to make Tiffany blue buttercream frosting. We're going to start with some buttercream frosting, I've already mixed some butter, solid shortening, heavy cream and some confectionery sugar with a little bit of salt, a little bit of vanilla, that's for flavor. We're going to take some of this icing or frosting rather out and begin to add some food coloring. I have a sky blue and teal and the ratio is three drops of blue to one drop of green to get the Tiffany color. So be very very careful as you add the food coloring. It sometimes comes out too fast, okay and I'm just going to use one drop of green in here because there is so little frosting and there's one okay. Now, magic. What do you think? Let's see how we did. I happen to have a Tiffany bag that had a very nice piece of Tiffany jewelry in it and there yo have it, Tiffany blue icing okay. In some markets you can go to the cake supply store and find already prepared what they are calling a Fifth Avenue blue gel because they can't use the Tiffany word and you would use it very very similarly, just a little little bit on a toothpick of the gel, add it to your icing and once again you will have Tiffany blue. Of course, if you are using lots of icing, you will need to add more. But for this little bit, there you have it, Tiffany blue. Well thanks for visiting us today at The Irwin Street Cooking School.
