White Chocolate Buttercream Frosting is an all-around favorite topping for cakes, cupcakes, or cookies.

How to Make It

Step 1

Microwave chocolate and 1/3 cup heavy cream in a microwave-safe bowl at MEDIUM (50% power) 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until melted and smooth, stirring at 30-second intervals. (Do not overheat.) Let cool to room temperature (about 30 minutes).

Step 2

Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add powdered sugar and 1/4 cup heavy cream, 1 Tbsp. at a time, beating at low speed until blended after each addition. Beat in salt and chocolate mixture until light and fluffy. Stir in vanilla.

FABULOUS recipe. So glad I found it. I did cut back powdered sugar to 3 cups since most people say they don't like real sweet frosting and it was perfect!!!!!!!!!!

Wasn't as smooth and creamy as a true buttercream frosting. I followed recipe exactly, and I wasn't as impressed as I had hoped based upon the reviews. Has definite potential.

My friend made this at work for December birthdays to go with Mrs. Billet's white cake. It was amazing!! Since she added a filling between the layers instead of this, it turned out to be a little too much frosting....too bad...we will just eat it with graham crackers!
