How to make delicious homemade frosting is easy! This recipe for buttercream frosting is a simple and easy frosting recipe. Using homemade frosting really tops off a personal touch for a birthday cake and things of that nature. This frosting recipe reminds me of the cakes and baked treats my grandmother used to make for us. It is so irresistably good and rick and so much cheaper than the store bought canned types.
- 6 tbl of soft butter or margarine
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 il confectioners sugar
- 3-4 tbl milk
Cream the butter with the extract using an electric hand held mixer. This works a bit easier if the butter has softened a little. You can let the butter sit out for a bit or microwave it for just a few seconds.
Add the salt and gradually add in the confectioners sugar, beating thoroughly after each small addition. The frosting should have more consistency now.
Stir in the milk a little at a time and beat until the frosting is smooth. You do not want it to be too runny so pour slowly. Frosting is easier to decorate with if it has some substance to it.
Your frosting is now ready to be put onto cakes, cupcakes, sugar cookies, you name it.
