FAIRWAY, KS (KCTV) -

Saturday is National Cupcake Day so we offer you this recipe for delicious buttercream frosting.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks or 1/2 pound), softened (but not melted). Ideal texture should be like ice cream.
  • 3-4 cups confectioners (powdered) sugar, sifted
  • 1/4 teaspoon table salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • up to 4 tablespoons milk

Instructions:

Beat butter for a few minutes with a mixer with the paddle attachment on medium speed. Add 3 cups of powdered sugar and turn your mixer on the lowest speed (so the sugar doesn't blow everywhere) until the sugar has been incorporated with the butter.

Increase mixer speed to medium and add vanilla extract, salt, and 2 tablespoons of milk/cream and beat for three minutes.

If your frosting needs a more stiff consistency, add remaining sugar. If your frosting needs to be thinned out, add remaining milk 1 tablespoon at a time.
