How to Make Perfect Buttercream Frosting | The Stay At Home Chef


Today on The Stay At Home Chef I’m showing you how to make Perfect Buttercream Frosting You guys are always asking for my recipe for buttercream frosting and this is my favorite. I feel like it’s the perfect ratios and it always gives you the best frosting for cakes and cupcakes. To start you’ll need 1 cup of softened butter and I’m using salted butter because that’s what I always have on hand. Plop that softened butter into a mixing bowl and you’re going to whip it until it’s light
and fluffy. Whipping your butter beforehand will make
it a lot easier to incorporate all of your powdered
sugar. Next we’re going to add in a little bit of vanilla extract I’m just going to eye ball it because I’m pretty good at it and add in about a teaspoon and a half of the vanilla and mix that all in with the butter You want to mix in the vanilla extract before you add in the powdered sugar to keep little clumps from forming So next we’re going to add in the powdered
sugar about a cup at a time I just eyeball it a little bit We’re going to use 3 cups of powdered sugar
total And you’ll mix it in between additions After you add in the first 2 cups you’ll probably want to thin it out a little
bit and you’ll do that with 1 tablespoon of milk Just mix that right into the frosting before adding in your final cup of powdered
sugar And that’s it! Your buttercream frosting is ready to go If you want to switch things up you can always
add in a little bit of almond extract instead of
vanilla extract to play with the flavor or experiment with other extracts as well. Next I’m going to transfer this all to a piping
bag and use it for some cupcakes but you can also use it on regular cakes as well. Not only does this buttercream have the perfect
flavor it also frosts really beautifully. This recipe makes about 2 cups of frosting and it can easily be doubled or tripled. Thanks for watching! You can find the full written recipe in the video description. Be sure to subscribe and check out the rest of my videos where you can find hundreds
