Strawberry Butter Cream Frosting

Updated 2/9/2012 2:25 PM

1 stick butter, at room temperature

cup strawberry juice

1 pound powdered sugar

Using an electric mixer, mix the butter, juice and sugar together on low until blended. Then cream on high until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Scrape sides of bowl as necessary.

Makes about 2 cups (will frost 1 sheet cake, 24 cupcakes or half a three-layer cake)

Cooks note: It is easier to make one batch of the frosting and frost the tops of the first two layers of cake, then make another batch and finish frosting the top of the third layer and the sides. For effortless frosting, dip your knife or spatula in a glass of warm water to help smooth the frosting without tearing the cake.
