jump to the recipes
There are many variations of buttercream frosting. There is the American buttercream which uses powdered (confectioners') sugar and becomes stiff when dried. French buttercream combines egg yolks, sugar syrup and butter into a deliciously smooth and rich frosting (that must be refrigerated). Buttercream icing can also be tinted or flavorerd.
