this is the recipe for Classic American Buttercream from 'The Buttercup Bakeshop Cookbook' by Jennifer Appel I LOVE this buttercream - the trick is to whip the butter until VERY FLUFFY
- Place butter in a large mixing bowl - whip for 3-5 minutes until very fluffy.
- Add 4 cups of powdered sugar and combine well.
- Add milk & vanilla and continue to combine.
- Add powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time until frosting is thick and spreadable **you may not use all 8 cups**.
