Very basic Vanilla Buttercream

Three ingredients, thats it.  This is a recipe for a super basic American style buttercream.  We will be using this recipe in the future to make so many other butter creams and toppings for our cake mix, if you master this simple recipe you will be ahead of the curve. (what curve)

  • 4oz fat (vegan margarine, butter, shortening, whatever)
  • 1.5 cups powdered sugar
  • one teaspoon Vanilla

Beat up the softened fat in the mixer(with the paddle attachment), add 2/3 of the powdered sugar and begin the creaming process. Start slow on a low setting so you don’t make a powdered sugar mess all over yourself.  When combined add vanilla and mix again. When its smooth, taste it… would you like it sweeter? add the rest of the powdered sugar and whip it up again.  Let that stuff spin in the mixer until its so smooth and sexxy you can’t stand it. If you did your job your buttercream should look something like this. Im sure it looks just like the lusciousness in this photo, and your feeling like the boss you are.
