Cream together butter and cream cheese. 2. Add vanilla. 3. Add 2 cups of powdered sugar. Taste. If you like it this cream-cheesy, leave it. Or, add 1/2 cup... read more

Mum's Real Buttercream Frosting

Posted by jtp139 This is my go to buttercream. My mom taught me how to make it. It's very simple but takes a while to make. It can be used alone or as a great base for fondant. I usually make it a few days before and stick it in the fridge to give it time to meld together. You will need to re-whip it before frosting. Ingredients 12 Large egg whites 1-2 Lbs. Superfine Sugar (depending on you taste) 6 sticks (3 Cups) of Unsalted Butter cut into chunks (about 1Tbs. per chunk) 1 Tsp. Vanilla Enough to cover at least a 4 layered 10" cake using 2" deep pans.... read more

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Ingredients 2 cups butter, softened (I use unsalted butter) 9 cups powdered sugar 2 1/2 cups cocoa powder 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 cups milk Instructions Cream butter in a large mixing bowl. Gradually add powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Add vanilla and... read more
