Quick, Easy and Delicious Vanilla Buttercream Frosting Recipe

Sharing is caring!

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.
