Buttercream Frosting

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by streak9381_13097329

I tried to replicate the buttercream from the Good Housekeeping cookbook, mainly because the book fell apart & the page got lost. I made this for my father's birthday cake, w/ the addition of coconut extract in place of vanilla. Very good.
