    Vanilla Buttercream Frosting: This was a hit this weekend. It's the best recipe I've found to decorate cakes & cupcakes with.

  • Karen Briggs

    Classic Vanilla Buttercream Frosting Recipe type: Dessert Author: Savory Sweet Life Prep time: 2 mins Cook time: 3 mins Total time: 5 mins Serves: 2.5 cups Classic American Buttercream frosting. This recipe uses powdered sugar, butter, vanilla and milk. This is a great recipe for decorating and piping on cupcakes and cake. Ingredients 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks or 1/2 pound), softened (but not melted!) Ideal texture should be like ice cream. 3-4 cups confectioners (powdered) sugar, SIFTED 1/4 teaspoon table salt 1 tablespoon vanilla extract up to 4 tablespoons milk or heavy cream Instructions Beat butter for a few minutes with a mixer with the paddle attachment on medium speed. Add 3 cups of powdered sugar and turn your mixer on the lowest speed (so the sugar doesn’t blow everywhere) until the sugar has been incorporated with the butter. Increase mixer speed to medium and add vanilla extract, salt, and 2 tablespoons of milk/cream and beat for 3 minutes. If your frosting needs a more stiff consistency, add remaining sugar. If your frosting needs to be thinned out, add remaining milk 1 tablespoons at a time.

  • Sarai Brock

    it's delicious and if used with vegetable shortening much healthier... no icing recipe is going to be healthy... the store bought ones contain way worse.

  • Sarah Jacobsen

    vegetable shortening is completely hydrogenated JUST like the weird fat they use to make store-bought. At least butter is a real food. I'll take that any day.

  • Billie Martin

    Why is it called buttercream when their is no butter in it. Sounds really sweet:(

  • Paulina Oberg

    Butter is far more healthy a choice than vegetable shortening. YIKES! Vegetable shortening is all Trans Fat.

  • Robert Jones

    Agreed, Paulina.
