I have never been a fan of buttercream from a bakery, but buttercream has been growing on me as I've been learning and experimenting with my own.
This might possibly be the best frosting I've ever tasted, no lies.
6 tbs butter, softened
2 2/3C powdered sugar
1/2C unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3C skim milk
1.5 tsp vanilla
- Cream butter and sugar in mixing bowl.
- Add cocoa powder and vanilla.
- Add sugar a little at a time (otherwise you'll have a powdered sugar explosion all over your kitchen).
- Add milk a little at a time.
