What are the ingredients for buttercream frosting?

This easy buttercream frosting uses just 5 ingredients – butter, powdered sugar, heavy cream, vanilla extract, and salt. Here’s a simple overview of each ingredient:

Butter: I use unsalted butter in all of my recipes because the amount of salt in salted butter can vary quite a bit between different brands. This can affect the flavor of your frosting, so it’s best to stick with unsalted butter.

Powdered sugar: Also known as confectioners’ sugar or icing sugar, this is simply finely ground sugar that dissolves easily in liquids. It’s what gives frosting its characteristic sweetness and smooth texture.

Heavy cream: Heavy cream is also known as whipping cream because it whips up into beautiful soft peaks. In addition to adding richness and body to frosting, it helps to thin out the mixture so that it’s spreadable. You could technically use milk in this recipe instead of cream, but the frosting will be less rich and creamy.

Vanilla extract: This is a must-have ingredient for flavoring any kind of vanilla frosting! Just a little bit adds so much delicious flavor. If you don’t have vanilla extract on hand, you could substitute another flavor like almond extract or lemon extract.
