“This is the best butter cream recipe that I have ever found a bit more work but so very worth it. It is actually a Wilton recipe. It is less sweet and much fluffier than other butter cream recipes that I have tried. I have done all kinds of variations of this recipe. For instance I omitted one stick of butter and put in 8oz of cream cheese. I have used lemon or orange extract instead of vanilla and I use it so much and it keeps so well in the fridge I always make a double batch.”
