Buttercream Frosting

Ultimate Buttercream Frosting


  • 1 lb Butter Unsalted, softened
  • 2 lb Powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/3 cup Milk
  • 2-4 drops Cheesecake Oil Optional


  • Using an electric or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat softened butter until it is soft and smooth. Approx 5-10 minutes depending on how soft butter was to start with. You may need to scrape sides to fully incorporate butter.
  • Change to whip attachment and add powdered sugar, salt, vanilla, cheesecake oil and milk. Begin mixing on low speed then slowly increase to medium. Continue mixing until buttercream is light and fluffy. The key to this buttercream is whipping it. It transforms into a silky, melt in your mouth frosting.
