Forgive all the exclamation marks. I’m watching the Next Great Baker and a cake just collapsed. Not only did I scream outloud, but I’m still having a heart palpitation.
NOW, frosting! The truth is, I basically covered frosting yesterday. I just wanted to re-cap and all a few extra details.
Make Fluffy and Delicious Frosting
- 1 cup butter (room temperature), 2 sticks
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 2-3 tablespoons milk, half and half or cream
- Using a mixer, cream softened butter and vanilla until smooth. Jessica's note: To soften butter, leave on the counter whole for about an hour before use, or 30 minutes if cubed. Always cut your butter in small cubes before putting into mixer, so that the butter will not only blend better, but won't fly everywhere from the mixer trying to cut it!
- Add sugar gradually, allowing butter and sugar to cream together before adding more. Jessica's note: Add the three cups in by 1/2 cup increments for a small bowl and 1 cup increments for a bigger one. If you have a splash guard, use it now! Sugar will be flying everywhere. You want to mix your frosting until it is WHITE.Yes, it will look yellow for a while, but after being beat for about 5 minutes it will turn white.This will work perfectly for adding colours so it won't have a yellow tinge.
- If you want your frosting a little creamier, add a teaspoon of milk at a time and beat on high until you get the right texture. Jessica's note: a little milk goes a long way. You don't want to end up watering down your frosting so remember, add a little at a time.
