Butter Cream Frosting

I LOVE butter cream frosting!  I posted this recipe...back when I posted the recipe for the BEST sugar cookies ever.  I decided that I would post it again....because it deserves it's own post. 

This frosting is SO good on sugar cookies and GREAT with cinnamon roles! 

One of my boys turned 6 a couple of weeks ago and asked for blue frosting for his chocolate I tried the butter cream frosting and what do you was also great with chocolate cupcakes.

I know that it looks like their is more frosting than cupcake...and maybe there is....

Butter Cream Frosting

1 lb. Powdered Sugar
pinch of salt
1/2 cube(1/4 cup) butter (softened)
1/4 c. evaporated milk
1 1/2 t. vanilla

Directions:  With mixer, whip butter until soft and creamy.  Add powdered sugar and salt.  Add powdered sugar and mix.  Add milk a little at a time to desired consistency.  If necessary, add a little more milk to thin or powdered sugar to thicken.  Add vanilla and food coloring(if desired).  Mix well.  Spread on cake, cookies, or cinnamon rolls.
Pin It!

  1. I love buttercream with chocolate cake and yes, it's ok if there is more frosting than cake. Interesting that you use evaporated milk here...I might have to try that next time!
