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 cupcakes...so I tried the butter cream frosting and what do you know...it was also great with chocolate cupcakes.
I know that it looks like their is more frosting than cupcake...and maybe there is....
