American Buttercream Frosting Recipe

I have been trying to add an American Buttercream Frosting recipe to this blog forever! I don’t know what happens. Well, yes I do. Every time I make it I put it on a cake or cupcakes and either give it away or we eat it. I have also been known to play with the frosting to see what kind of flower or pretty designs I can make.

So I guess you can say that I have been practicing a lot so I will learn the proper way to use this wonderful frosting.
