This is my go-to recipe when I need to frost a cake. Every birthday, this is what I use. I love love LOVE buttercream frosting! Here’s how it’s done…

  • 1/3 cup butter, softened to room temp
  • 4 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk; plus a little extra
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla

Beat the butter till fluffy. Gradually add 2 cups of powdered sugar, beating well. Slowly beat in 1/4 cup milk and vanilla. Beat in the remaining sugar, a little at a time. Add additional milk a tablespoon at a time, if needed, to desired consistency.

I eat this stuff out of the bowl with a spoon. Seriously. It is SO good!!
