Fluffy buttercream frosting recipe
We love butter. Way more than Paula Dean multiplied by 1000!
So yeah nothing is going in our frosting except for the real deal stuff.
Shortening and margarine have that fatty sickly sweet taste.
Makes the mouth tickle and not in a good way.
And we ain't gonna ruin a good cake neither.
1# unsalted butter room temperature
2# powdered sugar
1/3 cup heavy cream
Start ingredients in a large mixing bowl and make sure to start the beater on low.
Unless you want a powdered sugar blizzard and some choice words thrown down.
Mix for a few minutes and scape down the bowl really well.
No chunky frosting please.
Mix on high for at least 5 to 6 minutes.
Frosting should get whiter and fluffier.
It's easy to frost a cake when the frosting is warmer. Much easier to smooth with a frosting knife.
Chocolate-add 1/3 cup cocoa powder or 4 oz of melted cooled unsweet chocolate
White chocolate-add 1 cup melted cooled white chocolate
Strawberry- add 1/4 cup strawberry puree omit cream
