I have this thing about my homemade buttercream icing. I am not sure what it is – perhaps the simplicity of the recipe is what gets me. Or perhaps it is the smooth, creamy, and sweet taste. It doesn’t matter! I just love it and like to use it on pretty much every cupcake I make.
Buttercream frosting is easy to make and it only takes a few ingredients. Since it is homemade, you control what ingredients go into it. You can use organic powdered sugar, organic milk, organic butter, and organic vanilla extract.
Vanilla, chocolate, and peppermint = heaven.
These sweet treats are great for holidays, birthdays, or just because.
