How to Make Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: In this video, Mahalo Chef Eric Crowley?shows you how to make a vanilla buttercream frosting. Ingredients --------------------------------------------------------------------- * 1/2 lb unsalted butter * 1/2 cup milk * 2 tsp vanilla extract * 6-8 cups powdered sugar Equipment --------------------------------------------------------------------- * Mixer * Mixing bowl * Paddle attachment for mixer * Pastry/piping bag 1. Combine butter, milk and vanilla extract in mixing bowl. Add about four cups of powdered sugar (not all of it, because the sugar acts like a regulator for consistency). 2. Blend together with a mixer and paddle attachment to get it nice and creamy (a hand mixer can also be used). 3. After a few minutes, the mixture should still be quite thin. Stop the mixer and scrape the bowl edges regularly to ensure proper mixing. Add about two more cups of powdered sugar. 4. Mix again for a few minutes. You should have a mixture with a nice, spreadable consistency. If it's still too thin, just add some more powdered sugar until it's right. 5. When the frosting is thick enough, take it out of the mixing bowl and put it into a piping bag. 6. If it helps, you can turn a bowl upside down and place the cupcake on top to elevate it and make it easier to apply the frosting. 7. Hold the tip of the piping bag at a 45 °?angle and start at the center of the cupcake, moving along the edges to apply the frosting evenly and fancifully. Read more by visiting our page at:
