One of the most commonly used flavours for frosting is vanilla. It is easily available in all parts of the world and tastes absolutely delicious. With the help of it, you can prepare easy vanilla frosting at home in 15 minutes or less. There are a couple of ways to make this frosting, and you can try both methods to find out which one suits you better.
Powdered sugar method -
Powdered sugar - 2 cups (240g)
Butter or margarine, softened - 2 tablespoons (30g)
Milk - 2 tablespoons (30 mL)
Vanilla - ½ teaspoon (7.5 mL)
Corn syrup method -
Powdered (confectioners) sugar - 2½ cups
Water - 2 tablespoons
Corn syrup - 1 tablespoon
Butter or margarine, softened - 1 tablespoon
Vanilla extract - 1 tablespoon
Assemble all of the ingredients for the powdered sugar method and pour them into a bowl one by one.
Continue stirring them, so that they are all smooth and well-blended.
After you have added all of the ingredients to the bowl, start beating them with the help of a mixer until you get a fluffy mixture.
If your cake has already been prepared, use the frosting on it immediately rather than storing it somewhere.
In case you don’t have any baked item ready, you should put the vanilla frosting inside an airtight jar and then place in a fridge - however, do not store it in there for long.
If you are unable to use the first method, you can try the corn syrup method, which lends a sweet taste to the vanilla frosting.
Gather all of the ingredients together and start pouring them into the mixing bowl one by one.
With the help of a mixer, beat all of the ingredients together on medium speed.
Continue doing so until you get a smooth mixture.
Once you are done, check whether the mixture has become extra thick or thin.
In case of the former, add a teaspoon of water to it and if the situation is opposite, mix a teaspoon of powdered sugar into the frosting.
