The Best-Ever Vanilla Buttercream Frosting Recipe (with Video)

Most people I know including me always have a tub of frosting on hand in case they ever need it. Store-bought frosting and buttercream frosting are on opposite ends of the spectrum in every way in flavor, texture, sweetness, spreadability, and versatility. In fact, this buttercream frosting recipe is the only icing you need for any recipe calling for frosting. The buttercream frosting is made by creaming butter with powdered sugar, vanilla, salt, and a little bit of heavy cream, then whipping it into the perfect buttercream frosting. The frosting should taste light, airy, and like sweetened whipped butter. It should definitely not taste greasy, artificial, or overly sweet.
