Very Vanilla Frosting

I am always on the look out for new frosting recipes to try. I happened to stumble upon this simple & delicious recipe in one of my cookbooks and it’s become a favorite in our household. What’s great about this frosting recipe is that it tastes like it came from a bakery and on a $3 cupcake, but personally I think it’s better than any store-bought cupcake I’ve ever had.

You will need:

  • 2 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Beat butter in a bowl on medium-high speed for 1 minute or until smooth
  2. Stir in cream, vanilla, and a pinch of salt and mix well
  3. Reduce speed to medium-low and gradually add powdered sugar
  4. Beat until mixture is light and fluffy
  5. Enjoy!

*Frosting for 24 cupcakes
