Easy and Delicious Buttercream Frosting Recipe

Here is my buttercream frosting recipe, which is so good! This is the type of frosting you need to make if you plan to use the Buttercream Transfer technique to decorate your cake.

But honestly, I use this frosting all the time. It is my go-to recipe, because it is so delicious.

This frosting does not dry hard. Although it works great with frosting decorating bags and tips, it will remain soft. When you refrigerate this frosting, it will get stiff but upon warming to room temperature, it softens back up.
