I've recently been taking Wilton cake decorating classes and when taking the frosting class they actually teach you how to make a frosting. I could not believe how unbelievably amazing this frosting tasted. And what's crazy, there's no butter in the recipe! This frosting has become so addicting I usually just keep a batch of it made in my fridge and dip into every now and then. So, I just want to share with the world what an incredible buttercream recipe Wilton keeps hidden from us!
