Many of you have asked for my buttercream frosting recipe. For some reason it has never made into my recipe section. I realize this isn’t the an exact buttercream recipe, but I’ve been using it for years and everyone loves it.
- 1/2 cup butter softened
- 1 pound confectioner’s sugar sifted
- cold milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Chill the frosting bowl.
- Beat the butter until it is fluffy.
- Add sugar and vanilla.
- Add milk slowly until you reach a desired consistency.
If you are frosting a cake it will be need to be a thinner consistency, but if you are using a decorating bag you will want to make it a little thicker.*This recipe does not frost well when the house is hot and humid.*
