Ingredients
Frosting:
  • ¾ cup (1½ sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ½ cup whipping (heavy) cream
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 4¼ to 4½ cups confectioners (powdered) sugar
Instructions
Frosting:
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine butter, whipping cream, vanilla, and salt. Use an electric mixer and beat together until mixture is combined, don’t worry if the mixture looks curdled. Add 4¼ cups powdered sugar; beat 2 to 4 minutes or until frosting is thick and fluffy. Add additional ¼ cup powdered sugar if necessary to make a good spreading consistency.
  2. Use an offset spatula, or use a pastry bag and decorating tip to pipe the frosting between layers and over top and sides of cake.
  3. Cover unused frosting tightly or place in an airtight container. Frosting can be stored in the refrigerator up to two weeks. Rewhip frosting when ready to use to bring it back to a fluffy texture, adding a small amount of milk or cream if necessary.
