Whipped Cream FrostingCourse: FrostingDifficulty: Easy, Not tested
1 cup milk
3 Tablespoons cornstarch
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup sugar
1 cup butter
- In a medium saucepan, wisk milk and cornstarch. Heat over medium until the mixture begins to sputter, whisking constantly. Continue to stir as the mixture thickens. You will know it’s done when it reaches the consistency of thick cake batter, after about 7 minutes of heating and whisking. Stir in 2 teaspoons vanilla extract and set aside to cool COMPLETELY
- Beat 2 sticks of softened butter (1 cup) with 1 cup of granulated sugar until light, fluffy, and white in color, about 3 solid minutes of beating on medium-high speed.
- Add milk/cornstarch mixture to the butter/sugar mixture. Beat all ingredients for about 1 minute on high speed, scraping down the bowl halfway, until they are smooth and well blended. The frosting should be as light and fluffy as whipped cream.
