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.
