Quite possibly the best buttercream frosting iv ever had! Im really particular about my buttercream and i hate most recipes iv tried and i usually dread having to make it, but this frosting was so good i almost wanted it eat it by the spoonful and forego the cupcake!! The secret is in creaming the butter for sure! Do the whole 5 minutes or its just not the same!
