Buttercream Frosting Recipe
Vanilla buttercream frosting is the traditional choice for bakers and decorators alike. Quick and easy to make, this delicious recipe is well-loved for its flavor and versatility. Our vanilla buttercream frosting is softer and more spreadable than most icings, making it perfect for icing cakes and cupcakes. You can also stiffen this icing if your goal is to decorate your cookies or cakes with pretty flowers or piped messages. Pair with a vanilla cake for consistency or a chocolate cake for a bit of contrast. If you're after a super white cake, this homemade buttercream can also be prepared with all shortening, resulting in a pure white icing.
