I love making buttercream & I love eating it too! I always start with a basic recipe then I add a little more of vanilla and a little more of milk, and a little more powdered sugar until it’s perfect….. for my taste, that day. 😉
To frost about 12 cupcakes:
1 stick of butter – real butter
2-3 cups of powdered sugar
1-2 tblsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
Combine butter, 1 cup of powdered sugar, vanilla, and 1 tblsp. of milk. Mix for 1-2 minutes then gradually add more powdered sugar until reached consistency. Peaks should form so the frosting holds its shape.
If frosting is too thick, add a little more milk. Too thin, add more powdered sugar.
I use Wilton tip 1M
