Step 1: Gather Ingredients
Place 2.5 cups of powdered sugar, 2 sticks of butter, 2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons of milk and 1 and ½ teaspoons of vanilla or almond extract in a bowl.
Step 2: Blend
Use hand-mixer or electric stand mixer, if you have it, to blend until smooth.
Step 3: Customize and Decorate
You can add cocoa powder or food gel coloring to create your own unique buttercream. Once you’re satisfied with the flavor, color and consistency of your buttercream, it’s time to decorate!
