Reviews for Easy Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
Sort By :
"It is quick but the result is grainy. It lacks that smooth, silky texture that a buttercream icing should have. Certainly good enough for a kids cake, or lunch box cup cakes."
"It is absolutely 4.5 cups. Seems like a lot of sugar compared with the amount of butter. Most recipes for this frosting call for at least 1 cup of butter."
"It doesn't call for 4.5 cups. It's 4, one half cups. Or as most people would say, 2 cups. Once I realized why it was so sweet I added more butter and was able to salvage it!"
"I decorated two tone brownies with the chocolate and the almond variations. Very good!!! We all enjoyed them very much, and the strawberries we garnished them with tasted great with it! Very quick and easy too."
