Buttercream frosting

My daughters second birthday was the other day. For her party, I made cupcakes with buttercream frosting.

This recipe was easy to follow. I let my butter sit out for a couple of hours to soften. Then I put it in the mixer for a couple minutes.


Next I added the icing sugar and put the mixer on low until the butter and icing sugar were combined.

The last step was to add the vanilla and heavy cream. The recipe called for 3-5 tablespoons of heavy cream. I think I used just over 5.


Once the buttercream frosting was ready, I split it into two containers. Using gel dyes, I turned one container of frosting pink, and one blue.


My taste tester approved!
