This extraordinarily silky version of buttercream gets its texture and soft sweetness from marshmallow creme and is one of the Betty Crocker™ Kitchen's favorite scratch frostings. Perfect for cakes, cupcakes, layer cakes—or sometimes sneaking a spoonful. We’re pretty sure once you try it, you’ll feel the same way!

Ingredients

  • 1 jar (7-oz) Kraft Jet Puffed marshmallow creme (1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 1/4 cups powdered sugar

Steps

  • 1
    In large bowl, beat marshmallow creme, softened butter, vanilla and 1 tablespoon milk with electric mixer on medium speed until blended. Beat in powdered sugar until fluffy. If necessary, beat in more milk, a few drops at a time, until thin enough to spread.

    Fills and frosts 1 (8-inch) two-layer cake.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Scrape off your icing spatula often enough while frosting the cake to keep from introducing crumbs to your masterpiece!
  • tip 2
    To keep your serving plate clean while frosting the cake, place strips of waxed paper around edge of plate. Remove after frosting is complete.
