Really, Really Good (And Easy!) Buttercream Frosting
10 mins (prep 5, cooking 5)
8 ingredients
2.5 servings
First off, I have to give all credit to the Confessions of a Cookbook Queen blog, because that's where I found this recipe. It is the best country (non-cook) buttercream frosting that I have ever had. If you're decorating a cake or cupcakes, it also holds up well. I guessed on the yield, but this recipe will easily frost 24 cupcakes.
