Best Butter Cream Frosting

Hello everyone! Today I want to share with you the BEST Butter Cream Frosting recipe that I have ever found. It is so creamy and easy to spread. The taste is superb.

A few weeks ago I had the privilege to made my little grand daughters birthday cake. Her order was it had to have sprinkles inside and frosting was to be purple.

So here is what I ended up doing.

Purple in bowlThis recipe is amazing, it is so easy to spread and taste amazing.
Purple 1 layerI usually bake from scratch but because this confetti cake mix was already on hand I used it. I baked two 9″ cakes. After they were cooled I turned one cake upside down on a cake pedestal that I had. Then I frosted the top.

Purple 2 layer

Next, I put the other cake up right on top of the other cake, frosted the sides and then the top.

For the decorations I went to my little rose garden and picked some sweet light pink roses. I then rinsed them in cool water and made sure that there were no bugs.

Then laid the roses on top of the cake, and put on 4 pink candles. It was so easy, and I had a mighty happy . . .

  1. Jo,
    The cake is beautiful and so it the birthday girl!! Too adorable. Looks too pretty to eat.
    Happy Birthday to your sweet granddaughter.


  2. There you went and did it, giving me a sweet tooth. If only I could pull a piece off the screen! Love the purple color….great for a little girls birthday, camera shy or not!


  3. Thank you for sharing this yummy easy recipe. I usually don’t make homemade frosting, but this looks easy enough. I also know it tastes so much better than store bought. That cake looks so beautiful! I love the purple frosting and the roses on top. What a lucky girl to have that for her birthday!


    • Thank you Kelly for your sweet reply. I do have to say that I made a mistake on the butter amount in the recipe. It’s 1 cup of butter or 2 sticks of butter. So sorry! I would love to have you follow my blog by email. Your blog is amazing and your decorating is so beautifully done. Thank you for your inspiration. Hugs, Jo


  4. Oh my…. that is one of the prettiest cakes I’ve ever seen! And it looks soooo good! Your frosting has my mouth watering, dear Jo. I think I need to make some very soon. Hugs to you!


  5. Hi sweet friend! It’s me again 🙂 I just wanted to let you know that this beautiful cake will be featured at Roses of Inspiration later today. Love and hugs!


  6. What a DARLING photo! So sweet. And hey, don’t apologize about the butter. I’m from Wisconsin and there’s nothing like REAL butter – it’s just not on the menu every day. But that cake looks fantastic! Saw it on Roses of Inspiration. Thanks for the recipe.


  7. Hey my cute friend, this is the recipe that I have made like forever. lol! It is delicious and I love the texture as well! The cake is so pretty for your darling grand!! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
