    Trixyinaz's Note:

    I got this recipe from a cake site and can't stop making it. It is the best buttercream recipe that I have found. I modified my recipe to include Almond Extract, but you can use just about any extract. I've done clear vanilla and raspberry with rave reviews. I use this recipe for all my cakes and cupcakes. It colors nicely. If you want a stiffer buttercream for roses and such, omit or add very little milk. If you want a thinner buttercream, add more than 6 tbs of milk.

      Loved this recipe! Made for a wedding cake, I did not use any of the milk and the consistency turned out perfect. It actually withstood 95 degree Texas weather! I also used 2 tspns butter extract and 1 tspn almond extract for a more buttery flavor. This will be my buttercream recipe from now on.

      Excellent recipe for cake decorating! I topped off Kittencal's Glazed Lemon Cake #234278 with this frosting - I used clear almond extract - on cupcakes decorated with little candy melt ducks for my DIL baby shower. Raves on the frosting - everyone "it's not too sweet"!
