Vanilla Swiss Meringue Buttercream from Annie's Eats. Best frosting I've ever tasted in my life. Put me in charge of making a birthday cake and this is the frosting recipe I'll turn to.
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
