Rich Buttercream Frosting
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 10 min.
This Taste of Home Volunteer Field editor is in love with this frosting recipe! It's a little hard to spread on a more delicate cake so I just added a little more milk. I'm very happy to have a large quantity to also taste...over and over again.
I've been making this for years and it's always so good.
I found this frosting to be too thick and too sweet. It does make a ton of frosting. I frosted 2 dozen cupcakes with it, and probably could have frosted another dozen easily. I 'll keep playing with the basic recipe to see if it can be evened out a bit.
Good basic frosting recipe. I halved the recipe, which was enough to frost a 9" 2-layer cake. It was very sweet - I added a few more tablespoons of butter and a pinch of salt and it was much better. I also added a bit more milk to get the right spreading consistency for my cake.
Super! 1% milk is fine. Enough frosting for a 13x9 cake & a 9x9 2-layer cake.- Theresa
What a great frosting recipe! I add an additional tablespoon of milk to make the consistency a little softer, which I prefer. I've used it to frost both cupcakes and cut-out cookies and am so happy with the results!
A tried and true recipe. A good recipe like this, well it makes decorating your Christmas Cookies a breeze. Thanks Taste of Home. You are the Bomb!
This is a great recipe for basic buttercream. The flavor is perfectly sweet and the texture and consistency are great. It easily accepts extra liquid (water or milk) to make a smoother, more glazelike frosting. It also crusts nicely, making it easier to transport frosted cookies! I have used this recipe exclusively for my sugar cookie decorating since I found it and also for my daughters' birthday cakes. The original recipe yields quite a bit - plenty to generously frost at least 6 dozen cookies or a couple of 9x13 cakes.
This is a poor mans recipe...my 6 siblings and I use to make this same tasting fronting with mom growing up for Christmas cookies....it was powdered sugar and water. I am very disappointed with this recipe. My nice was very excited to try something NEW and unfortunately ended up with an old family recipe....
Very good frosting. Sweetness is not overpowering. I tried it on sugar cookies but I think it will perfect on cupcakes. Definitely staying in my recipe box
