  • If it calls for shortening, use butter. Or replace some liquid with melted butter.

  • Just butter flavoring?? You could use any flavoring probably. Vanilla or anything else you have on hand. It might not taste just like buttercream, but it'll still be good.

  • Make a real buttercream...using real butter. Or just replace it will a little bit of salt and some vanilla.
