Best Buttercream Frosting


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 egg yolk*
  • 1 tsp. vanilla + 1 tsp. any other extract you like, coconut, anise, cherry etc.
  • Ad
  • 1 Tbsp. cream

*I use 1 cup dry instant non fat milk instead. Or Egg Beaters for safety.


Cream butter and sugar, add remaining ingredients. Beat until mixture is thick and creamy. Add more powdered sugar for frosting thick enough for pastry tube decorator. Add food coloring if you like.
