Best Buttercream Frosting



About: Hi! My name is Anna and I am fifteen-years-old. I absolutely love to read and write books, play the violin and fiddle.

It is sometimes so hard to find a good recipe for buttercream. I finally figured it out! I hope this helps!

Step 1: Butter

Take 3 sticks (1 1/2 cups) butter out of the fridge and allow to sit until they are very soft. Not melted, though.

Step 2: Sugar

When butter is soft, add 5 cups powdered sugar. Whisk together with butter until smooth. The consistency should be very thick. If you want thick frosting for decorating intricately, stop here. But if you want buttercream to frost a cake, keep reading.

Step 3: Vanilla

Add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

Step 4: Milk

Add 2 - 3 tablespoons milk. Whisk until smooth.

Step 5: Dye

If you want to dye, now is your time. Otherwise, store in the fridge for a few days or in the freezer for a few weeks.

Step 6: Enjoy Decorating!

There is so much you can do with frosting, so have fun! Above are a few cakes I made recently using this recipe. Have fun and experiment!
