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
2 pounds powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon Creme Bouquet
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup 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.
