Skip the store-bought stuff and make your own easy and delicious homemade Simple Vanilla Buttercream Frosting recipe! Use it on your favorite cakes, cupcakes or just a spoon – I won’t judge!
I’m the kind of person who scrapes the frosting off of store-bought cakes … I just don’t care for it. My kids love it because that usually means they get extra frosting! I don’t care for canned frosting too much either but I have used it on a rare occasion – like for my Firecracker Cake or my Halloween Bundt Cake. You can say that I’m sort of a frosting snob.
I love making my own frosting – and you’ll love it too once you see how easy and delicious it is! This is my go-to frosting recipe – I use it for everything from cakes, cupcakes, and cookies! This recipe blows that store-bought stuff outta the water …. it just doesn’t even compare!
