Wedding Cake Frosting

I love wedding cake. It has that sweet, creamy frosting.

This recipe is quick and easy using a white boxed cake mix and homemade frosting.

Wedding cakes are usually some of the best tasting and most beautiful cakes you’ll come across. It’s highlighted at weddings and usually costs a pretty penny.

I have been making this homemade white buttercream type frosting for many years and it always reminds me of that perfect wedding cake.

I made a white cake mix from Pillsbury and followed the directions on the box for a 13×9” pan. If you make a round, two-layer cake, I would double the frosting recipe.

After the cake has completely cooled, prepare the frosting and spread it over the cake. I store any leftovers in the refrigerator.

What at is the best flavor of wedding cake you’ve ever tasted?
