Ooh So Creamy Buttercream Icing Recipe

4 Jun

I have had many people ask for a good Buttercream Recipe. This is a great recipe that I use from time to time on my cakes. This recipe is not too sweet, and is very creamy.

 
1 stick butter (unsalted)
1 stick butter (salted)
1 cup shortening
2lb bag of confectioner’s sugar
3 teaspoons clear vanilla extract
5-6 tablespoons of milk (cold)
Cream butter and shortening. Add clear vanilla extract then add confectioner’s sugar. Allow confectioner’s sugar to blend well then add milk.Instead of adding the Vanilla you can acheive other flavors such as almond by just adding your flavoring in the place of the vanilla.

I like to add a 1/4 cup of Cream Cheese to this mixture as well when I am doing a Carrot Cake or Red Velvet, the taste is out of this world.
