Any Flavor Butter Cream Frosting

Rose Mary Mogan


I posted this recipe with my CHRISTmas 7 Up Marbled Peppermint Layer Cake, but then I thought I should post it alone, in the event you wanted to make a different flavor of frosting. You can choose the flavor you want to use & tint it accordingly, for instance, Orange by using Orange Extract, & you could also add orange jello or Kool aid to the frosting or red & yellow food coloring to create orange color. The possibilities are endless. You can tint it pink by using red food color and crushed peppermints, add nuts with a Black walnut or Butter Pecan extract, just use your imagination & go wild.

1/2 c

How to Make Any Flavor Butter Cream Frosting


  • 1Add softened butter and buttered flavored crisco to a medium size bowl, then start off slowly beating the mixture on low speed and gradually increase speed. Add the powdered sugar and beat till it starts to come together. Add the extract of your choice, and beat, then add enough milk till frosting reaches the consistency you are looking for. Tint if desired with food coloring or other tint food options. Beat till creamy and smooth and then frost your cooled cake.
  • 2NOTES OF IMPORTANCE: If you are doing a bundt cake you only need to use a 1 pound box of powdered sugar. If you are making a 3 layer cake as I did then use a box and a half to add an ample amount of frosting between layers on top and sides of cake.
  • 3This is my easy go to frosting, sometimes I add cream Cheese to change the flavor when there is room in the fridge to keep the cake refrigerated. Add different flavors of extracts to change the flavor. Note Extracts have a much stronger flavor than the IMITATION VARIETY like the vanilla. I never use them, unless that is all that is available in that flavor, eg. Butter Pecan. Imitations are a little cheeper,but not always as effective.
