The glossy look of royal frosting we often see might be beat by the better taste of buttercream.
Georganne Bell shares the best way to decorate with buttercream.
1 Tablespoon warm water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter (room temperature if at all possible)
2 teaspoons vanilla
5-6 cups powdered sugar
Dissolve the salt in the water and set aside. Cream butter and 4 cups of powdered sugar together in a mixing bowl until they are well blended. Add the saltwater and vanilla and mix well. Add the remaining powdered sugar 1 cup at a time until the butter cream is as thick as you want it to be. Whip on high speed for 2-3 minutes.
