Simple /American/Vanilla Buttercream (Piping consistency)

Unsalted butter 1 cup (room temperature highly recommended) (or use half unsalted &half salted butter ,skip adding extra salt)

icing sugar 31/2-4 cup

a pinch salt

vanilla essence 1 tsp

milk 1-2 tbs

hand mixer /stand mixer highly recommended(can use wooden spoon but needs strong muscles)

Beat butter for 4-5 minutes with a mixer on medium speed until the butter white &fluffy. Add 1 cups of powdered sugar at a time and turn your mixer on the lowest speed (so the sugar doesn’t blow everywhere) until the sugar has been incorporated with the butter(2-3 minutes). Once all sugar added increase mixer speed to medium/high and add vanilla extract, salt, and 1 tablespoons of milk and beat for 3-4 minutes. If your frosting needs a more stiff consistency, add remaining sugar. If your frosting needs to be thinned out, add remaining milk 1 tablespoons at a time.

(for me its take 15-18 minutes total)

Add colour of your choice &decorate your cake
