Yummy Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
Blue Ribbon Recipe
You'll never grab a can of icing again once you try this creamy, smooth buttercream recipe! Homemade frosting is so easy and this recipe is no exception. Bakery quality, it's the perfect frosting for spreading or piping. The flavor is rich with a hint of butter but mostly you taste vanilla. Make a boxed cake, ice, and pipe it once baked, and everyone will ask you what bakery you picked the cake up from.
Note: This is the perfect amount for a standard cake (whether it be a round cake, cupcakes, or 9x13). To pipe our cake for a pretty photo, we did double the recipe. The Test Kitchen
How to Make Yummy Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
- Once all the powdered sugar has been added, check the consistency. You should be able to easily frost a cake without worrying that you are going to tear the cake or cause it to crumble. If it is too stiff, add the water and blend. I would start with half the water and see how it is before adding the rest of it. The humidity can really make this vary, so don't assume that what worked last time will work exactly the same again.
