Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

This vanilla buttercream frosting is the perfect homemade buttercream for your cakes, cupcakes, and cookies. It’s creamy, light, sweet, and so delicious you’ll want to eat it with a spoon.


1 cup unsalted butter, softened (2 sticks) 3.5 cups powdered sugar (sifted) 3-4 TBS heavy cream 1 tsp vanilla extract 1 dash salt

Make sure your butter is softened to room temperature, this will help it cream into the frosting easier, for a smooth consistency. Sift the powdered sugar after you measure it, then add it to the frosting to avoid any lumps in the frosting. Add a little more powdered sugar about 1/4 cup at a time, or more heavy cream, 1/2 TBS at a time, to get the right consistency of your frosting. More heavy cream can make the frosting extra smooth and spreadable for a sheet cake.
