This frosting, although containing lots of butter, makes a good-sized batch of frosting. It works wonderfully for decorating, as it holds up well. You can add food coloring and simply increase the powdered sugar if it is too thin for you. And it tastes GREAT!

Now, this is a scrumptious homemade buttercream recipe. It's so silky and fluffy, you could mistake it for an elegant Swiss meringue buttercream. The recipe is so simple and can be whipped up in a matter of minutes. Perfect for those moments you get a craving for cupcakes. It will elevate the flavor and texture of any cake you make from good to superb.

The last step is the most important. Add as little or as much of the powdered sugar as you prefer for consistency and sweetness. In the Test Kitchen, we used 2 1/2 cups. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
