Vanilla Buttercream Frosting 

A good vanilla frosting can’t be any easier. Now Buttercream isn’t my favorite all the time. A lot of stores don’t use real butter or you buy one from the grocery store to find it’s corn syrup and shortening. This recipe couldn’t be simpler. Very versatile and can use to as a base for chocolate or caramel. 

Tools Needed

  • Hand mixer or Kitchen aid mixer
  • Spatula
  • Measuring cup
  • Measuring spoon


  • 4 cups Powdered Sugar (Confectioners Sugar) 
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1-1/2 sticks of Unsalted Butter softened 
  • 1 tsp of While Milk


1. Add butter to bowl

2. Add the sugar and milk 

3. Start mixing until it starts coming together. And add vanilla.

4. Mix until completely incorporated.

This mix is perfect for piping, spreading or making designs. Definitely a fun mix to give the kids to do something with their cookies or cupcakes. Add some food coloring or fruit. It will firm up on the counter or put it in the fridge to get fully stiff.
