    Chef #1287382's Note:

    This is the best butter cream recipe that I have ever found a bit more work but so very worth it. It is actually a Wilton recipe. It is less sweet and much fluffier than other butter cream recipes that I have tried. I have done all kinds of variations of this recipe. For instance I omitted one stick of butter and put in 8oz of cream cheese. I have used lemon or orange extract instead of vanilla and I use it so much and it keeps so well in the fridge I always make a double batch.

      No Crisco, no powdered sugar - My new go-to frosting recipe! I did use only 1 teaspoon of Kosher salt (1 Tablespoon scared me) & with 1 3/4 cups salted butter, this was perfect on a simple yellow cake filled with fig-lemon jam. I also added 2 t vanilla extract = Mmmmm! Can't wait to make with a couple of teaspoons of lemon zest with a lemon cake, next a splash of Frangelica to top a pumpkin-pecan cake.... Thanks for another fabulous recipe!

      As stated in the original post this does require a little extra work. It is very well worth the effort. Not to sweet which complimented Sour Cream Cake perfectly. I sprinkled the top with white chocolate chips. This will be my go-to recipe for butter cream in the future.
