I just can't imagine biting into something frosted in butter...that would be too much I think. Regular buttercream has other ingredients to even out the fat impact. That's why I am leaning towards a cream cheese "frosting".

The buttercream frosting recipes I've seen use butter, powdered sugar, a small amount of whipping cream or milk, and whatever flavoring. Maybe adding whipping cream or milk to the butter being turned into savory frosting would help?

That's 1 cup of butter to 3-4 cups of powdered sugar...the bulk of the buttercream is powdered sugar...there will have to be something in the savory frosting to add that bulk from the missing ingredient and I don't think that much cornstarch would taste very good.

Easy check, there is a 1:3-4 ratio to try out, try with a tablespoon of butter and go from there, taste and determine if it tastes good.

Maybe we've beat the subject into the ground enough? lol That was fun.

I just hope he comes back to give us a report on the dinner. I hate not knowing what happened.

I hope the OP reports back to and was able to find something that worked well.
