2 sticks softened unsalted butter

approx 1/4 cup heavy cream or milk
dash sea salt


cream 2 sticks of butter


slowly add 2 cups of the sifted powdered sugar

continue with the remaining 2 cups of sugar until you reach desired consistency.


Depending on your desired consistency you might use a little more or less of the sugar.


Mix on medium for about 4-5 minutes. Keep your eye on this as it mixes and do NOT over mix. I have had it turn grainy if I over mixed.

Notes

This is a very easy way to make Dulce De Leche frosting and it evolved from my fascination with Nestle's Dulce De Leche in a can. You can do all kinds of things with this stuff ;-)

Slopez17- sorry I have not answered. I just now got the message. I think this would accept a darker gel or paste food coloring. Hope that helps.

I HAVE A QUESTION!...I really like this recipe and I want to use it for a dulce de leche cake that I'm making in a soccer ball cake pan this saturday. Can you please let me know if I can add food coloring to this type of frosting and do you think I will be able to work it as far as decorating the cake is concerned? I REALLY appreciate your feedback on this ASAP..... THANK YOU!!!

This frosting came out very well! I highly recommend using it. The dulce de leche is not overwhelming, just enough for you to taste the great flavor, but still subtle enough that I want to keep eating more. The instructions are very helpful, especially since I'm still learning how to bake.

After you ice a cake with this, does it form a crust on the outside? also known as a crusting buttercream recipe. thanks
