Buttercream Recipe Update...

Buttercream icing is by far my most favorite to make and use! It's simply delicious and travels well. I can get serious height, helping to create a ridiculously indulgent treat! Add a bar of melted dark chocolate for a change up!

Please enjoy this fantastic recipe!

Jess's Deliciously Simple Buttercream Icing
1 Stick of organic butter
1 tablespoon of bourbon vanilla extract
6 to 7 cups of confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup of heavy cream or half and half

Soften butter and combine vanilla and confectioners' sugar. Mix on medium speed until creamy. Add heavy cream to desired consistency(may add a lil less or more). Color may now be added.

Now go bake some cupcakes and have a very sweet weekend!
