"After failing to find the perfect recipe for buttercream icing, I found one that worked for me and then added my own two cents."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons
confectioners' sugar, sifted
food coloring, or as needed
Creamy and fluffy frosting, yet still perfect for piping/decorating. One recipe, however, was barely enough to frost ten cupcakes, so keep this in mind for any of your frosting or decorating needs. I used this for coconut cupcakes, so I flavored it with some coconut oil flavoring, then topped with toasted, shredded coconut. I would call this one of the more exceptional buttercream frosting recipes.
The consistancy was fine but it tasted too sugary and not creamy enough.
awesome frosting. easy to decorate with. the only changes i made was that i melted the butter and added 2/3 cup of cocoa to make the frosting a chocolate flavor.
This is a great buttercream icing recipe. I followed it fairly closely, thought I did add extra vanilla, which then necessitated adding some extra 10X sugar to make up for the extra liquid. It does not make all that much, so I will prob double it when decorating a cake. It made enough for me to not-over-generously ice 18 cupcakes. Great taste and consistency. GO BULLDOGS! ;) TY for a great recipe!
This icing recipe is my absolute favorite out of all that I've tried! I used it to pipe on decorations for my daughter's horse birthday cake. I needed to add almost 2/3 cup more powdered sugar to make it stiff enough to pipe on. To decorate a 9x13" cake, you will want to double the recipe. (Make sure you use clear vanilla if you want white icing.)
This icing was just what I was looking for as I didnt really want to take the time to do boiling icing. Not too too sweet but very creamy. I will use this again. Alot of flavorings can be added to this.
This recipe is for REAL frosting not the garbage that comes from the store. I followed the recipe without changes. This was served with SCOTTLEY'S BASIC YELLOW CAKE and the filling from ALMOND CREAM-PUFF RING. My brother ate two pieces and took half of the rest of the cake home with him. I will never buy frosting again ever.
This is so much better than store-bought icing! Just be sure to use real butter; it makes all the difference.
