I am going to start off this post by telling you that I strongly believe that a good buttercream makes everything better :)
I have probably tried over 10 recipes in a quest to find the "perfect" buttercream frosting, ruining perfectly good cakes, cupcakes and cookies along the way. Some recipes are too sweet, some are too airy, some are too runny....is a good buttercream recipe too much to ask for?
After voicing my frustrations to my sister, Bridget, she asked me if I had tried her "go to recipe". Um, nope....didn't know you had one, but email it to me ASAP. Instead, she sent me a link to a recipe on her friend's blog, "cookie confessions". I had tried a few recipes from the blog before, and everything I have made from it has been FABULOUS, so I had high hopes for the buttercream. Let me tell you, I was not disappointed. The frosting was fabulous in both taste and texture. I used it to decorate Franny's birthday cupcakes and everyone loved them.
A big thanks to B and to Katie and family for the perfect recipe and a lifetime full of buttercream happiness :)
