Call us purists, but we like buttercream frosting made with butter and cream. And this buttercream frosting recipe is made with exactly those ingredients (plus some confectioners' sugar and vanilla). Try it, and see if you don't agree that it is the best buttercream frosting recipe you've ever tasted.
Use this buttercream frosting for cupcakes and cakes.
- 1 cup butter (softened to room temperature)
- 1 to 2 1/2 cups sugar (confectioners', to taste)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 to 2 tablespoons cream (heavy)
With an electric mixer, beat butter and 1 cup of the confectioners' sugar until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Taste and add more sugar if desired. If you prefer a sweeter buttercream frosting, use up to 2 1/2 cups of sugar.
Add vanilla and 1 tablespoon of the cream to the frosting. Beat well. If frosting is too thick for spreading, add another tablespoon of cream.
