This frosting will make your cake taste fabulous! I am not much of a frosting eater on my cakes, but this is one recipe where I scrape my plate clean. Be sure to use real butter and real cream.
- 7 1⁄2 cups powdered sugar (2 lbs)
- 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened (1 1/2 sticks)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup heavy cream
- Cream powdered sugar, butter, vanilla, and salt. While mixer is running, slowly add a portion of the cream to the mixture. Continue adding the cream to make the frosting of a good spreading consistency. You may need a little less or a little more of the cream called out in the recipe to achieve your desired consistency.
Fantastic frosting!!! I made 1/2 of the recipe as I just made a 9 X 13" inch cake, which worked out perfectly!! Definitely a frosting I would make again!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Spring "Pick A Chef" event.
Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaantastic Frosting! I used it on a red velvet cake!!! Very good!
