Strawberry Buttercream Frosting, quick and easy recipe #ButterCream #Frosting #Strawberry

Strawberry Buttercream Frosting Recipe:
Summer is the time for strawberries. We like strawberries on everything, and that includes our cupcakes and honey biscuits. To be honest, I have even been known to mix a small dollop of this strawberry frosting into my vanilla bean ice cream. Gone are the days of using store bought strawberry icing. Once you taste this strawberry frosting recipe, you will be hooked!
Here’s what you need:
3 cups 10x powdered sugar
1 cup unsalted butter (softened)
1 tablespoon of pure vanilla
3-4 strawberries (use a food chopper or puree them)
1/8 teaspoon of salt

How you make it:
1. In a mixing bowl beat butter with a mixer until creamy.
2. Add vanilla to your creamed butter.
3. Slowly add powdered sugar and salt and mix until you have a nice fluffy frosting.
4. Add your chopped strawberries (or puree) and continue mixing until the entire mixture is a pretty light pink.

Tangy Grape Icing Recipe, Quick and Easy #Frosting, #FruitDip, #Icing

Tangy Grape Icing Recipe:
I have been known to really mix things up in the kitchen. My family knows I love to experiment, and for the most part they are usually happy to do some taste testing. Sometimes my creations are a total flop, and sometimes I hit the taste-bud jackpot. This is one of my children’s favorite icing recipes, and it is oh, so easy to create at home (and while you’re at it, before adding the grape flavor, set aside some icing and try to come up with your own creation).

Here’s what you need:
3 cups 10x powdered sugar
1 cup unsalted butter (softened)
1 tablespoon of pure vanilla
1 Tablespoon of Grape Flavored Tang or Kool-Aid with the sugar already added.
1/8 teaspoon of salt
How you make it:
1. In a mixing bowl beat butter with a mixer until creamy.
2. Add vanilla to your creamed butter.
3. Slowly add powdered sugar and salt and mix until you have a nice fluffy frosting.
4. Add Grape flavored Tang (or any flavor for that matter) and continue mixing until all of the Tang has been evenly mixed in the frosting.

Tangy Grape Icing is perfect for peanut butter cupcakes, sugar cookies, and fresh fruit!
