Classic Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
This Classic Vanilla Buttercream Frosting is amazing! It's made with just 5-ingredients and crusts to perfection! Plus, there's no egg whites so you can lick the beaters!
Servings: 4 cups
- 1 cup Unsalted Butter softened to room temp
- 3-4 cups powdered' Sugar
- 3-4 tbsp Heavy Cream
- 1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
- Dash of Salt
In a large bowl or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream butter on low speed until pale and creamy.
Slowly add in 3 cups of confectioners' sugar and 3 tbsp heavy cream a little at a time, alternating between each, while mixing on low over the course of about 3 minutes.
If your frosting needs a more stiff consistency, add remaining sugar. If your frosting needs to be thinned out, add remaining cream.
Add vanilla and salt.
Beat on medium-high for about 2-3 minutes until frosting is light and fluffy.
Frost or fill your baked goods or just lick the beaters.
