5 Ingredient Buttercream Frosting is the easiest and most delicious frosting for decorating cupcakes or frosting cakes.
1/2 cup butter at room temperature
bag of powdered sugar
heavy whipping cream
Cream the butter and shortening in a standing mixer.
Add in the vanilla and mix again.
On low-medium speed, gradually pour in the powdered sugar 1 cup at a time.
Stop periodically to scrape the sides of the bowl so all the ingredients are incorporated.
As the frosting gets dry, add in the heavy cream.
Continue mixing until the frosting is fluffy and smooth.
