Make Your Own Frosting

Did you know making your own cake frosting is a breeze?  We make our own for most of our cakes using this simple recipe.

Creamy Butter Frosting

Chocolate Frosting Variation


  1. Cream butter, salt, and vanilla, beating until light and fluffy.
  2. Add sugar gradually, beating after each addition.
  3. Add 3 tablespoons milk, beating until smooth. Beat in more milk until desired spreading consistency is reached.

Makes about 2 1/3 cups of frosting, enough to frost tops and sides of of an 8-inch 2-layer cake or a 10-inch tube or bundt cake, or about 1 dozen cupcakes.

You can make just about any flavor or consistency you want. Use it to frost a funfetti cake from scratch [4]!
