Vanilla Buttercream Recipe
2 sticks room
Cream the butter until it is really light and fluffy.
Gradually add the sugar. (The first time I made this I added it all at the same time. Mistake!) It will be pretty thick.
Add 2 Tablespoons of cream and beat the frosting for a few minutes. If the frosting it too thick, add a little more cream until you get the consistency that you like. Decadent!
You can make it ahead of time and store it in the fridge. Just let it come up to room temperature so it will spread easily. Tint with food coloring as needed. (A tip about food coloring: use the gel kind you find at craft stores like Michael’s. I used to always use the grocery store kind and always wondered why my icing was runny and the colors were dull and not quite right. The first time I used the gel food coloring, I had an Oprah-style “aha” moment. Seriously. It was life-changing.)
