    Chicagoland Chef du Jour's Note:

    I have made many different variations of buttercream frosting because it is my husband's favorite. I have to say, I like this best. I made 1 1/2 x recipe to frost a double layer 9" cake.

      Good icing if you like buttercream. I'm not a huge fan of buttercreams, and this one is very buttery tasting. I added some food coloring and frosted cupcakes for a baby shower. I stuck the cakes in fridge and the icing set up well. I would make again if I needed a buttercream icing. This recipe was almost exactly enough for 1 dozen cupcakes, so I had to double it.
