Buttercream Frosting

Megan discovered a fantastic buttercream frosting recipe on Foodnetwork.com that we made a few alterations to and have been using over and over. It's quick and delicious every time. Not even Lauren can mess up this frosting!


Servings: will frost 12-18 cupcakes, depending on how thick you frost
  • 2.5 cups confectioner sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk

  • Cream sugar into softened butter on low until well-incorporated
  • Increase speed to medium and blend about 3 minutes 
  • Add vanilla and cream and beat an additional minute
Tip: To make the frosting whiter, use either clear vanilla extract or add in a single drop of blue food dye.

    I'm always unhappy with my buttercream frosting, but this seems like the proportions may be better. I'm going to give yours a try! :)
