Buttermilk Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

Buttermilk Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

Total time: 5 minutes 

I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner, but replacing the milk/cream with buttermilk in homemade frosting is seriously amazing. It's not obviously tangy. It just balances out the extreme sweetness that is American Buttercream so well. Looks really cute with sprinkles on top too!

Here's everything you'll need to complete this guide:

Hand mixer×1
Round piping tip×1
Sprinkles (optional)×1
Butter, salted, room temperature ×1 Cup
Powdered sugar ×4 Cups
Vanilla extract ×2 tsp
Buttermilk, room temperature ×3 Tbsp
Cupcakes with buttermilk vanilla buttercream frosting

Beat softened butter and powdered sugar together for a few minutes until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and buttermilk and continue beating for another minute.

Pipe or frost cupcakes, add sprinkles if desired, and serve.
