Today, I’m sharing 30 Best Frosting Recipes! From classic Buttercream Frosting to Cookies and Cream Frosting and everything in between, you’re sure to find a perfect frosting recipe for your next baking endeavor!
I started this website with the tagline “Runs on Buttercream”. That was many years ago and I’ve since evolved, but there will always, ALWAYS be a special place in my heart for frosting. Give me the corner piece of cake, the one with the biggest frosted rose, or heck, just a spoonful of buttercream will do, I’m not picky!
Let’s Get Creative With Frosting Recipes!
What is just so fantastic about how starting with a classic buttercream recipe is just how customizable it can be. Throw in some crushed M&Ms into vanilla frosting, and suddenly you have an ultra creative frosting that will turn any boring cupcake into an M&M Cupcake! Throw in some crushed Oreos into classic buttercream and boom! Cookies and Cream Frosting!
Frosting will turn an average dessert into something truly incredible. I have some fantastic ideas to take just a simple vanilla cupcake to the next level. This is what’s so fun about frosting recipes…it’s an easy place to get really creative!
