Why I Love This Recipe

This frosting is rich and velvety and is sure to work well to top any cupcake, cake and more! It's also very versatile and can be adapted!


Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 cup butter, softened
4 1/2 cups confectioners' Sugar
3/4 Tsp. Vanilla ext.
1/2 Tsp. Almond ext.
6-7 Tbsp. Milk


Directions

1.) Cream butter in mixing bowl until fluffy. Beat in confectioner's sugar 1-2 cups at a time with mixer. Add extracts.


2.) Add milk 3 Tbsp. at a time until the desired "frosting" consistency is achieved.


**This recipe can also be easily doubled and frozen- I always have a batch in the freezer!


It is also versatile and can be added to/ changed to make:


-Chocolate buttercream frosting (replace 1/2 cup of pwdr. sugar with cocoa),


-Lemon (replace milk with lemon juice and add 1 Tsp. lemon peel),


-Peanut Butter (1/2 Cup peanut butter instead of regular butter)


-Peppermint (Replace Vanilla ext. with peppermint)


***This recipe was adapted from "Taste of Home's" "Easy Buttercream Icing"***
