Yummy Buttercream!

This is an easy great tasting icing recipe that I found on Fields of Cakes blog. She has a lot of recipes that sound really scrumptious and her photos are to drool over!

Here is her Vanilla Buttercream.

1/2 lb. unsalted butter (softened)

1 stick salted butter (softened

1/2 pkg. french vanilla instant pudding mix

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup powdered sugar ( or more to suit your taste)

In mixer set on medium speed, beat the butter until smooth and silky. Turn speed to low and add the pudding mix. when it is all incorporated, slowly add the cream, a little at a time. When fully incorporated bring speed up to high and beat for 5-7 minutes. Turn speed back down to low and add powdered sugar by tablespoons, tasting along the way. When it is sweet to your taste, beat again at high speed for a good 5 minutes to really break down any graininess that you might get from the powdered sugar. Bring back down to low speed and beat for a while to get rid of air bubbles.
