Perfect Buttercream Frosting
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, at room temperature
- 2 lbs powdered sugar
- 2 teaspoons almond extract
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 4-6 Tablespoons milk or water*
The waves were created using a medium star tip. We used Wilton Tip #18.
*This is all about preference. Your frosting will still taste great no matter which of these you choose. I even use almond milk and that tastes great. If you use milk, however, be sure to keep your cake refrigerated.
**To make this a chocolate buttercream, add one cup cocoa powder, which is what the chocolate frosting pictured below is.
