Buttercream Frosting

· 16 Comments

Oh yes, smooth creamy delicious buttercream frosting!

It really is simple to make and well worth the effort!

Buttercream Frosting Recipe

1/2 cup softened butter

1/2 cup plain shortening

4 cups powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon Creme Bouquet

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

2 Tablespoons water or milk

pinch of salt

Mix with an electric mixer until light and creamy. Yes it is a standard recipe but there is a secret weapon!

It is Creme Bouquet! It makes the frosting bowl lickin’ good.  Using clear vanilla keeps the frosting nice and white!

This amount of frosting will frost at least a dozen cupcakes. I use a large closed star tip for frosting cupcakes.

Football starts this weekend. Decorate some cupcakes with #1 finger cupcake picks and football and helmet quins and you are ready for some football.
