Classic American buttercream frosting. "Surprisingly easy to make, and can be adjusted to your personal preferences." Perfect for Easter cakes and cupcakes.
Buttercream Frosting 2 Cups Unsalted Butter (I used 1.5 Cups Salted Butter and 1/2 Cup Crisco for firmness) 1 lb icing sugar, sifted 1 tsp Vanilla 1/8 tsp salt (omit if using salted butter) Notes: ~ Don't mix for more than 2-3 minutes ~ Sub in shortening for butter if you want to decorate with flowers or want a firmer texture ~ Make it once and then play with it
