Reviews for Easy Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
Sort By :
"Tasted chalky and just like confectioners sugar - not creamy at all."
"I made both the Vanilla and the Chocolate versions. I found the Vanilla a bit too sweet, but the chocolate was just right. Both versions were enthusiastically approved by my Thanksgiving guests."
"My favorite frosting. I use this recipe but flavor with lemon, using lemon juice instead of the milk, and omitting the vanilla. My grandkid's favorite!MY favorite is almond flavoring."
"Some recipe calls for unsalted butter is that what to use for this or regular butter"
"Keeping this one on hand for all my cakes. My daughter made it with coffee extract for chocolate cupcakes and it was out of this world"
