The Best Buttercream


I'm not a fan of buttercream frosting that comes in a can. It just tastes so processed, fake and full of sugar. Instead of buying those, I'll usually whip up my own because it's so easy and tastes so much better. I don't like sugary frostings so my version has just enough to compliment the butter. This recipe is an adaptation of my normal buttercream because I've incorporated almond extract. It adds a sweetness without additional sugar and enhances the flavors of the cake itself.

Almond Buttercream Frosting

4 stick unsalted butter, softened
5 c powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract

1. Beat butter until all softened together.
2. Add 1 c powerded sugar at a time, beating well after each cup.
3. When all sugar has been incorporated, add vanilla and almond extracts.
4. Beat all together until fluffy.
