This Creamy Brown Sugar Frosting is super rich and loaded with sweetness and flavor. It’s easy to make and goes well with pretty much everything!
- 1 cup butter
- 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar, packed
- 1/3 cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- In a medium saucepan over medium low heat bring the butter, brown sugar, and heavy cream to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat immediately and allow to cool completely.
- Transfer the brown sugar mixture into the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. With the mixer on low, slowly add in the vanilla and then powdered sugar. Turn the mixer speed up to medium and continue mixing until creamy and combined, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary.
This frosting is creamy and will pipe, but isn’t stiff enough to pipe roses. It also is a great “crusting” frosting.
Store airtight for up to 5 days in refrigerator. Bring back to room temperature before using.
