  • Ready Time : 0 min


about 4 cups


  • 1 ½ cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons milk


  1. In the bowl of standing mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, combine the butter, confectioners’ sugar, salt, vanilla, and milk and whisk on medium-low speed until smooth.
  2. Increase speed to medium-high and beat until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. To store, place a sheet of plastic wrap over the buttercream so that it is touching it, cover tightly with a lid, and freeze up to 1 month. Thaw in the refrigerator and rewhip before using.
