Easy, Incredible Buttercream Frosting

Slow and Steady

When working with a cooked frosting containing a sugar syrup, add the sugar syrup slowly to eggs so as to heat the eggs gradually and not scramble them.
 

Substitute Eggs

Some cooked buttercream frostings do not use eggs. They are made instead with confectioners’ sugar, butter, water and flavoring. Flavors can be added: melted chocolate for a chocolate buttercream frosting, orange juice for an orange buttercream.
 

Prep Ahead of Time

You can make a buttercream frosting ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator. To soften, let stand at room temperature. When frosting softens, beat with an electric mixer.
