Buttercream

1 cup egg whites

2 cup sugar

1 1/2 pound butter, room temp.

1 tablespoon vanilla

      

Directions: 

Whip on medium/high for 5-10 minutes, until the mixture holds stiff peaks (similar to Fluff).

Add butter and mix until incorporated. Add flavoring or add-in of your choice. Freeze or chill, if desired, or use immediately.

Buttercream should be quite soft to achieve a smooth finish.  Microwave for a few seconds to soften slightly.
