Billowy and not too sweet, this may become your new favorite frosting. Pair it with the Very Vanilla Layer Cake or your favorite layer cake.
I am going to use this icing as my go-to buttercream icing from now on. The frosting is fussy and takes forever to make, but it is so worth it. It's not too sweet and is wonderfully light and fluffy. At first I thought it was going to be too soft to pipe, but it held the shapes perfectly - perfect crisp edges. All of my co-workers loved it. Just amazing.
My first time making buttercream icing with a flour milk base.
It was delicious and easy to make. It does take sometime so plan in advance. I will keep recipe for future baking.
Decided to try this because I really don't like traditional frostings. It's the first time I've eaten ice cream since I was a little kid...finally, an icing that isn't overly sweet! Very pleased.
