Oh my. This is delicious. Even the title just makes you want to gobble this right out of the bowl. I made this for a dessert for our family while they were in for Thanksgiving. I didn't even want to share. For a selfish moment, I even thought of buying frosting from the store just so I could eat all of this. But I didn't. I iced the cake, and everyone loved it. This is a delicious and beautiful buttercream. It takes a little time, but it is so worth it when done.

My cousin is a baker on the side. I am not sure what frosting recipes she has but I think she may like to add this to her book. I am going to try it just because I want to taste it. (smile) I may even make a cake to go along with it.

OMG. I could just eat this off the spoon! I absolutely love buttercream. Looking forward to making the next birthday cake so that I can try this.

This seems super easy to make! So excited to try this out during all the sweets for the holidays!

I am not always a huge frosting fan, but I love buttercream frosting. I can't wait to try this DIY recipe!

I've been looking for a new buttercream recipe. Can't wait to try it!
