Vanilla Buttercream, My Version
American Buttercream - My version
This one is my recipe and it is enough to frost and cover an 8" three layer cake.
1 lb. of unsalted butter room temperature
6 cups of powdered sugar (sifted)
6 teaspoons of good vanilla extract
a. Beat butter and sugar until completely incorporated.
b. Add vanilla and beat on high for a good 4 minutes. Stop and scrape down sides occasionally.
c. Beat until very pale in color.
