Reviews for Easy Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
Sort By :
I found this very simple, just what I wanted, simple. I used the 4 cups of sugar, plus added Hershey's unsweetened cocoa and the special dark cocoa, just added to taste. I also made my own powered sugar with my nutra-bullet because i didn't have any powered sugar. Not bad at all, sweet though. I then made my version of Reese's, added peanut butter to some of the frosting and made chocolate peanut butter frosting. Not bad.
To those who found the frosting to be gritty, make sure to use pure cane sugar. Many cheaper/store brands are beet sugar, which always produces a gritty frosting for me.
Looking for a good recipe and i found it
Yes, this an easy and quick frosting. However, I found it very sweet!
