Delicious Cupcakes with Whipped Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

Whipped Vanilla Buttercream
  • 1 ½ cups (3 sticks) Unsalted Butter (room temperature)
  • 3 cups Confectioners Sugar
  • 3 tbsp. Milk
  • 2 tsp. Pure Vanilla Extract
  • Pinch of Salt

Use a stand mixer to beat the butter on medium speed for 8-10 minutes until it is light and creamy. Then add the sugar, milk, vanilla extract, and salt. Beat on low until completely mixed. Increase speed to medium again and beat for another 5-6 minutes. The complete buttercream mix will be light, creamy and fluffy.

Use on cakes and cupcakes as your heart's content. Coloring can be added such as strawberry and chocolate as desired. For chocolate, I use 1 cup of Hershey's powdered cocoa.

For low sugar mix, such as for diabetic and/or weight loss nutrition, the confectioners sugar can be replaced. I've seen suggestions online using a mixture of dry milk powder, cornstarch, and Splenda. Here's a site with instruction.

Just a few beautiful samples of buttercream frosting of similar mix as others have used it:
