Johnson's Bakery Butter Cream Frosting

Family Favorites


All I can say is that this frosting is "lick the bowl clean" good! Quick and easy, it will become your "go to" frosting recipe.

A great basic recipe that you can use various flavorings in place of the vanilla (orange, lemon, etc.) or add food coloring to meet your needs.
