Greg’s Standard Buttercream Frosting
Greg’s basic buttercream frosting recipe, that is often the backbone of my other frosting variations.
solid unflavored vegetable shortening
heavy whipping cream
Cream butter and shortening in an electric mixer with whipping attachments.
Add vanilla and combine.
Stop mixer, add confectioners’ sugar, and slowly combine with other ingredients. Increase speed once fully incorporated.
Slowly add cream and incorporate at high speeds. Continue beating until frosting is light and fluffy.
