I’m surprised how often I get asked for my buttercream frosting recipe, because it is SO simple. I’ve been using it for years, and it’s just a combination of all the baking books I’ve ever read over the years, and my many hours spent frosting things. Haha.
But I realized, as I tried to tell others about it, that there are some VERY specific things I do to get the frosting perfect and tasty everytime. So this video is detailed and if you follow it, you’ll get my exact buttercream, which I think is PEFECT.
You can, obviously, add less or more sugar, less or more butter, and even some milk or heavy cream if you want less butter in there. But all in all, if you follow these tips YOU ARE GOLDEN! I hope you enjoy!
