Buttercream Frosting is the best frosting for decorating your cakes, cupcakes, muffins, or cones. It’s creamy, buttery, smooth, and silky in texture. Perfect and fluffy piping for decoration.


You can also add various food coloring to the frosting to make it colorful and also make your cake frosting looks beautiful. It’s a homemade American Buttercream Frosting that takes less than 30 minutes to prepare.

This we have prepared with basic ingredients like unsalted butter, powdered sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla essence. By using unsalted butter, you can control the salt in your recipe. There is no use of milk or cream. It’s simple to make for any occasion.

Just mix unsalted butter with sugar and pour it gradually while beating continuously. Then add lemon juice or vinegar and vanilla essence. Beat it continuously until the texture comes smooth and fluffy. Also, you can use any type of nozzle to decorate the buttercream frosting.

Remember that when you start mixing unsalted butter with powdered sugar for the first time, beat it at a low speed so you don’t throw it here and there. Also, don’t use milk in this recipe because it won’t hold it’s texture stiff for too long. That’s why I have used unsalted butter to make the frosting stay as decorations for a long time.
