Favorite Buttercream Frosting Recipe


  • 1 1/2 sticks butter softened
  • 4 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tsp real vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 tbsp meringue powder
  • 3-4 tbsp whole milk more or less to get your desired creaminess


  1. Blend butter in a large mixing bowl, in a stand mixer, on medium speed until nice and fluffy
  2. Add vanilla, meringue powder and almond extract and blend on low until incorporated
  3. Now add sugar 1/2 cup at a time, alternating with milk on medium speed, I use my whisk attachment for this, and blend until smooth, creamy and spreadable.
