Recipe: simple buttercream
Thanks to recent events, we have a house full of cupcakes.
Not a bad problem to have, I know.
I'm not too picky about my frosting, but homemade is always waaaay better than a tub from the grocery store.
My super simple, super yummy recipe, enough to generously frost 24 cupcakes:
1 1/2 sticks butter, softened on the counter, not melted in the microwave
6 cups powdered sugar
3 tsp. vanilla extract
1/3-ish cup half and half
Beat butter until smooth.
Add remaining ingredients until smooth.
If it's too thick, add a bit more half and half. If it's too watery, add more sugar. Add food coloring to your liking. You know the drill.
Cupcakes for breakfast? Ya, that's how we roll.
