Quick, easy and delicious frosting
For my son's 20th birthday he wanted a vanilla cake with buttercream frosting and minimal decorations and something more "grown up" than past birthday cakes, so I decided to make him an Edsel logo as
he and his father own a 1959 Edsel Villager

I used a boxed cake mix, but went in search on the internet for a buttercream frosting recipe, as I had never made it before and found this super easy and delicious recipe on Food.com for Vanilla Buttercream Frosting.

I used canned decoration frosting to look like the emblem on the front of the car and instead of writing out EDSEL I just used the letter "E". As the canned frosting did not come out consistently it; there would be nothing and then it would glob out, resulting in less than professional looking results but tasted great and my son loved it.

If I had it to do over, I would use red licorice strands for the logo and lines and just used decoration frosting around the edges.

  • How to make a frosting. Vanilla Buttercream Frosting - Step 1
    Step 1

    In a bowl, combine butter sugar and salt and cream them together.

    Add milk and vanilla and beat 3-5 minutes until creamy. It came out very thick and I added a teaspoon of water to get it to more easily spread on the cake.
