Bridal Buttercream

Well I'm expanding my resume or maybe its called "biting off more than you can chew"
A friend of mine is getting married this Saturday and 2 weeks ago she had her cake decorator back out. I opened my mouth and offered to help her out (of course, thinking she would find someone else). My mom and grandma have made many a cake in their day so I thought I could follow in their footsteps.

This week learn with me about how to make a 3 Tier Wedding Cake! The following is the recipe I believe Im going to use. So it hasn't been tested out.

Quick & Easy Vanilla Buttercream Frosting


  • 3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons whipping cream


In a standing mixer fitted with a whisk, mix together sugar and butter. Mix on low speed until well blended and then increase speed to medium and beat for another 3 minutes.

Add vanilla and cream and continue to beat on medium speed for 1 minute more, adding more cream if needed for spreading consistency.
Makes 12 servings
