Vanilla Buttercream Frosting (From Sprinkles Cupcakes)

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by C. Taylor

My sister got this buttercream frosting off the box of a Sprinkles Cupcake mix, made famous by Oprah. My sister said this was amazing. Update: I have finally gotten around to making this myself. I will say, that I don't like my desserts overly sweet and. though this was very good, I think I would probably decrease the amount of sugar for my personal taste. I'm glad everyone else has liked it as-is, though. :)

I made this frosting last week when I was trying to duplicate CakeLove's 44 cupcake. It was delicious and I had rave reviews from my family. I just made the frosting again today and tweaked it to suit my own taste. I thought the frosting was too sweet and difficult to spread, so to fix that I only used 3 cups of powdered sugar, two TBS of half & half (instead of the milk), and I added 1/4 tsp of Cream of Tartar to help stabilize it. Otherwise I followed the directions. It turned out exactly as I wanted it to. I was able to spread it easily and it wasn't too sweet. It would be perfect for the 44 cupcake since that has caramel drizzled over the top. It was just too sweet for me in the original recipe. I love how easy this is to make!
