Best homemade frosting recipe EVER
Yes, that post title might appear to indulge in a little hyperbole…but I stand by it.
Years ago I decided to never again buy those icky store-bought plastic cans of artificial hydrogenated goop, and it was when I discovered how easy homemade buttercream really is…and how easy cream cheese frosting really is…
A couple of days ago when my Peanut turned six, I discovered that if you use half of each, you get this AMAZING creamy frosting that takes maybe 5 minutes to make. Try this. You’ll never go back.
