Buttercream Frosting


You'll Need

5 qt stand mixer fitted with paddle or electric mixer


  1. Add butter and vanilla extract to mixer bowl. Cream on MED speed until combined and lightened, scraping bowl and paddle as needed.
  2. Add powdered sugar, milk powder and 3 Tbsp water. Mix until light and creamy; adding an additional Tbsp of water if needed for desired consistency.
Chef Tips
  • Frosting can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator in a covered container. Prior to using, bring to room temp and stir to bring back to creamy consistency.
  • Use clear imitation vanilla if wanting a snow white frosting.
Substitute 3-4 Tbsp whole milk for the milk powder and water. The consistency will change a bit with this substitution.
