Best Buttercream Frosting

Over the years, I've come to perfect my buttercream frosting. I've taken elements from many different recipes and love the result. This is great as a stiff decorators frosting on cupcakes or cakes. I recommend doubling the recipe if you're decorating or like to pipe a good amount of frosting on your cupcakes.

Buttercream Frosting

2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
4 cups powdered sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp milk

Beat butter on med-high until it is light and fluffy. Reduce mixer speed and add powdered sugar 1 cup at a time. Wait until all sugar is mixed into the butter before adding the next. Add vanilla, salt and milk and beat until fluffy on medium- about 3 minutes.
