Recipe of the Week - Quick Vanilla Buttercream

Week 48

This recipe comes from Gale Gand, one of my favorite chefs on the Food Network.  She had a show called Sweet Dreams from 2000-2008 and is a great pastry chef and teacher! 

Quick Vanilla Buttercream

3 cups confectioners' sugar
1 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 to 2 tablespoons whipping cream

In a stand mixer fitted with a whisk, mix together sugar and butter. Mix on low speed until well blended and then increase speed to medium and beat for another 3 minutes. Add vanilla and cream and continue to beat on medium speed for one minute more, adding more cream if needed for spreading consistency.
