This Vanilla Buttercream Frosting is perfectly rich and creamy, with lots of vanilla flavor! It pipes easily and holds its shape so it's great for birthday cakes and cupcakes.
- 1 cup unsalted butter room temperature
- 5 cups powdered sugar (600g)
- 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- pinch of salt to taste
Place butter in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes.
Add sugar, one cup at a time, and beat until combined -- it will be thick. Beat in vanilla extract.
Add cream, a little at a time, and beat on high speed until light and fluffy. Continue adding cream until desired texture and firmness is reached.
Add a pinch of salt (to your tastes) and beat until combined.
Spread or pipe onto cake or cupcakes, or see post above for storing for longer periods of time.
