Reviews for Easy Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
Sort By :
"My hubby and I need a sweet treat after leaving the thanksgiving pies at his sons house after tonight dinner. Plus neither were gluten free which I need. This was very easy to make. Sift your sugar, that could be why your frosting was grainy. Ours was smooth and creamy and yes sweet. I did add a tablespoon more of vanilla as my hubby and I both thought it needed it. I will admit I liked the flavor of my first taste which was all the butter and a third of the sugar! I used my babycakes 3 in 1 cooker to make mini cupcakes. They are cooling then we will be using this sweet frosting to top them! I can't wait too try more flavors!"
"The best!- Theresa"
