Basic Creamy Butter Frosting And Variations Recipe

This basic butter frosting recipe is the perfect topping for a cake or cupcakes. I love this frosting on chocolate cupcakes or to frost a layer cake, tube cake, or sheet cake. You can add different flavorings to this frosting and you can easily color it to suit any occasion. The ingredients can be scaled up easily for 2 cakes or 2 dozen cupcakes.
