Quick, Easy and Delicious Vanilla Buttercream Frosting Recipe

This recipe is SO quick and easy and is delicious on any type of cake, or even on sugar cookies. For a quick treat I also like to make it and spread between two graham crackers – YUM! It’s easiest to make in an electric mixer, but you can certainly use muscle power to stir by hand.

Chocolate Cupcakes1/3 C butter, softened
3 C confectioners sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2-3 Tbsp. milk

Beat together butter and sugar. Add in vanilla and 2 Tbsp milk. Beat until the frosting is smooth and spreadable. If too stiff or lumpy, add the additional milk. For colored frosting, add a few drops of food coloring.
