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.*
