Is there anything better than a homemade cupcake? And when I say homemade, I’m talking Funfetti box mix. That is the real stuff right there.
But the frosting you see pictured above? Well that is actually homemade. And it couldn’t be easier.
Homemade Buttercream Frosting
1/2 C butter, softened
1/4 C crisco
1/8 t. salt
2 C powdered sugar (keep it out, you’ll need more)
1 t. vanilla
approx. 2 tbsp milk
1. Cream butter and crisco until well blended.
2. Add salt, mix well.
3. Gradually add powdered sugar. Add milk to thin out/fluff up the frosting. Begin with 1 tbsp. . .add more if necessary. Add extra powdered sugar (approx. 6 tbsp) if you like it sweeter.
4. Add vanilla and beat until light, smooth and creamy.
Enjoy on a cupcake, or simply:your finger.
