Do you try to make homemade icing, but are I pleased with your results? Does your icing turn out grainy, onceetly sweet, or too dense? Then try this recipe, the only buttercream I use for all my catering orders. It’s think and sweet, but not overpowderinly so. It has a light texture that melts in your mouth. And it is perfect for piping and writing!

Step 1: Gather Ingredients

-1 pound powdered sugar
-3 sticks unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-1/4 cup heavy whipping cream

Step 2: Cream Butter

Cut the butter into small chunks. Place in the bowl of a stand mixer and beat for one minute on low speed. We

Step 3: Add Ingredients

Add the remaining ingredients to the butter. Beat on lowest speed for one minute. (Beware of a could of powdered sugar if you beat too fast)

Step 4: Just Beat It

Now switch your mixer to high speed and beat for 5 minutes. You will see the icing get fluffier, smoother, and lighter in color. Make sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula occasionally.

Step 5: Any Way You Want It

Now the basic frosting is ready, you can do anything with it. You can die different colors, you can pipe it on cakes, you can make beautiful cupcakes, or you can eat it with a spoon.
