So, the other day as I was shopping and I noticed that the price of canned frosting went up, significantly.
What on earth is the deal with inflation these days? Anyway, after further inspection, I also realized that store-bought frosting contains certain ingredients that I can’t even pronounce.
What is up with that? I think someone out there is seriously boycotting the frosting industry. That’s when a lightbulb went on over my head. I should just make my own cake frosting!
So, I searched for a wonderful recipe online that didn’t look too hard to make and that contained a minimal amount of pronounceable ingredients. I found one, made a couple of test batches and tweaked it, and all was well with the world after that.
I do have to say that the frosting turned out great and smooths right across a freshly baked, but cooled, cake.

Quick Tip: change the color of this buttercream frosting with a few drops of food coloring. I like green or red for Christmas.
