Better Than Buttercream Frosting Recipe with step wise pictures.
Delicious frosting which is super yummy and buttery. This frosting taste so much better than regular buttercream and is less sweeter but richer.
This buttercream is similar to my flour buttercream recipe but so much easier than that. This frosting is a no fail recipe and taste so yummy, light and airy. The buttercream is not so sweet like regular butter cream. I enjoy this one so much when topped on cupcakes or spread on cakes.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
