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.
