Does anyone have a good butter cream frosting they would like to share? I tried last noc and it tasted like powdered sugar and water! Elk!
Unfortunately, my recipe is a little wierd... but, its easy...
take a pound of sweet butter from the fridge, let it come to a cool room temp. you dont want it melty... (so basically, dont speed the process in the microwave)
put it in your mixer, if you have, or beat with a hand mixer till soft.... then, begin to cream in some convectioners sugar.... (instead of sifting, what you can do is put the sugar in a bowl, and carefully whisk it a bit with your DRY wire whisk... it breaks up lumps and incorperates air.)
Wait for it to begin getting thick... it'll be about a cup or so in... add 2 Tbsp milk and a scant 1/4 tsp salt(not kosher...regular is ok... popcorn salt is better... finer grind, more scant the measuring).... add more confectioners sugar till it is like a toothpaste.... spreadable basically. add in your vanilla or almond extract to taste and beat a little more. apply to your COOLED cake now... let sit in fridge for stiff set, let stay in comfortable kitchen for softer set... its a good recipe... you'll need about 1 box of powdered sugar... like a lb or so...
