Easy Buttercream Frosting Recipe

Don’t forget to PIN this recipe for later!
While buying premade frosting for your cupcakes may seem like a bargain, it can get expensive if you’re making lots of cakes, cupcakes, and other delicious desserts. Following this simple yet delicious recipe, you will be able to create the perfect buttercream frosting every time.


1/2 cup butter, softened
4 cups confectioners’ sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
5 to 6 tablespoons heavy cream or whole milk


In a large bowl, beat all ingredients together with electric mixer. Add more milk until desired consistency is reached. Yields about 3 cups.

My all-time favorite frosting is peanut butter. Using the same recipe above, replace the butter with peanut butter, and add a few extra tablespoons of milk.

P.S. This frosting would go well with French Vanilla Cupcakes!
