What is Cake Frosting? 

A buttercream layer or icing drizzle is necessary to finish off any pastry. Cakes and cupcakes are topped with frosting, which is a whipped confection. It can be flavored with vanilla beans and cocoa powder and is typically produced by beating butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Broadly speaking, frosting is fluffier and thicker than icing, which is thin and has a propensity to set quickly. Icing typically needs to be spooned, poured, or drizzled over baked items rather than being spread like frosting. And this cake frosting recipe will teach you how to make the perfect frosting. 

How to Make It?



  1. 12 cups confectioners' sugar
  2. 3/4 cup softened butter
  3. 3/4 cup whole milk
  4. 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
