Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

American Buttercream Frosting is my main go to frosting for my creations.I had to confess, it actually took me 3 tries before I got this right. It ‘s not because it is difficult to make, because among all other types of buttercream frosting, this is the easiest one.

It took me 3 tries because I was trying to tweak it to reduce the sugar for a small batch. At the end , I got the sweetness and texture that I wanted, I am happy with the ratio that I got.

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (room temperature)

Instructions:

  1. In a stand mixer or hand mixer, cream the butter until it becomes fluffy (approximately 5 minutes).
  2. Add Icing Sugar and mix until it gets a  smooth texture (approximately 8-10 minutes).
  3. Gradually add milk (1 tbsp at a time) until you get the consistency that you are aiming for.
  4. Keep in the fridge and let stand in room temperature before using for a more spreadable and ready to pipe consistency.

This is also a good basic frosting recipe that you can flavour with jams, coffee , coconut, fruit zest or chocolate.

Good to know:

  1. Room  temperature butter is very important for this frosting.
  2. If you store this in the fridge, leave to room temperature before using so that it will be spreadable.
