Vanilla-Almond Buttercream Frosting

Ceramic Measuring Spoons SetButtercream frosting is a staple in any baker’s kitchen, and since we have not written up a recipe for our blog, we’re doing it now. What makes this recipe different from a standard buttercream frosting recipe, is the incorporation of one extra ingredient; so try it out on your next cake or dessert and tell us if you like it!

What You’ll Need:

  • 3 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons milk
  1. In a medium bowl, mix confectioners’ sugar and butter with an electric mixer on low speed. Stir in vanilla and almond extracts.
  2. Gradually beat in milk to make frosting smooth and spreadable. If the frosting becomes too thin, beat in a small amount of powdered sugar. If it becomes too thick, beat in more milk, a few drops at a time.
  3. Frost a 13×9-inch cake, fill and frost an 8- or 9-inch two-layer cake, or frost two-dozen cupcakes.
