Buttercream Frosting

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Chef Gina Calina

I got this recipe from Eileen Goudge's wonderful book entitled "Something Warm from the Oven". Makes enough to frost two 8-or 9-inch layers.

I liked the light texture of this frosting, and the flavor was perfect with just the right amount of sweetness. Followed the ingredient list exactly, using about 3.5 T. of half-n-half to frost 24 cupcakes. Delicious!
