I love those recipes that we all grew up with, they are just too good to miss out on.Vanilla buttercream frosting is the workhouse of the frosting world. It’s simple, adaptable, dependable… it’s the basic vanilla frosting that you see everywhere. But basic doesn’t have to be boring. When vanilla buttercream is done right, it’s light and fluffy and full of vanilla flavor. It adds an extra delicious layer of flavor to the baked good it’s paired with, rather than just fading into the background.
Vanilla buttercream is a versatile frosting for sure. It pairs well with both chocolate and vanilla cupcakes; you can spread it on sugar cookies, graham crackers (with sprinkles!), or pretty much any flavor of cake. The perfect vanilla frosting is a recipe every baker should have in their back pocket, and we’re here to help. This recipe makes the BEST vanilla buttercream frosting we’ve ever had.
