  • Step 1

    Prepare a stand mixer with a whisk attachment.

  • Step 2

    Whisk butter until creamy.

  • Step 3

    Reduce speed to low and add in icing sugar 1 cup at a time until well blended.

  • Step 4

    Increase speed to med and beat for 3 minutes.

  • Step 5

    Add vanilla and 2tbsp cream and continue to beat on medium for 1 minute.

  • Step 6

    Add more cream as needed until desired consistency is reached (I added all 4).

  • Step 7

    I whipped this for a few minutes longer as I was determined to get rid of the graininess.

  • Step 8

    Frost on a cool cake and chill.
    *This made enough to frost the rosette cake pictured but would likely be too much if you're just looking to do a regular frosting on a 2 layer cake. If so, I would suggest cutting this recipe in half.
