Fundamentals: Buttercream Frosting. (Explanation of different kinds of frosting and a recipe.) "Although I have made several types of buttercream frosting recipes, this one is by far my favorite due to its flavor, simplicity, and smooth texture."
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
