There are a lot of frostings that we can use in making a cake. And, the most popular frosting is buttercream frosting. Buttercream frosting is easy to make and requires the easiest ingredients that can be found at home. While it's said to be easy, there are plenty of ways that could go wrong if you don't handle the buttercream properly. So, this post will teach you the correct way of making buttercream frosting.
Buttercream frosting is basically butter, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and milk. But, this recipe adds corn syrup because it makes the frosting smoother. Corn syrup is helpful in the frosting, especially when you need to ice and write on cakes. This isn't necessary, but it can help you achieve the most perfect buttercream.
Also, when adding the powdered sugar to the butter mixture, make sure to add it two cups at a time. This way, the butter and powdered sugar will have enough time to adjust in the mixing.
Another thing about buttercream frosting is that you have to get the right consistency. If your frosting is too thick, it will not spread well. You don't want it too runny because it will slide off the cake. That's where you have to add the corn syrup. It will help you get to the right consistency.
This recipe will be your easy go-to buttercream frosting. Of course, you can add more flavor to this frosting. You can turn it into chocolate buttercream, almond buttercream, Oreo buttercream, and lots more!
