Best Ever Buttercream Frosting

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Frozen

 Ingredients List

  • 2 C unsalted butter (4 sticks)
  • 8 C confectioners sugar, sifted
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 C heavy whipping cream


*Use clear versus dark vanilla extract for a whiter frosting.
1. In bowl of stand mixer, cream butter until light and fluffy. Add confectioners sugar and blend until smooth.
2. Add salt, vanilla and 6 oz whipping cream. Continue to blend until well incorporated. Add additional 2 ounces of cream if frosting is too thick.
3. For the whoopie pies featured in these photos I simply made this Soft Almond Sugar Cookie recipe but substituted vanilla in place of the almond extra and then rolled the dough in sprinkles instead of raw sugar.
4. I used a Wilton 1M tip to pipe the frosting on one cookie and then sandwiched it with another.
