Fresh Strawberry Buttercream Frosting
Today, my mom suggested that we should also make the cakes. My answer was, "No. Just no." It's not because I don't think our cake would taste better, I just think we need to draw the line somewhere. I'm pretty confident we'll have enough stress come October.
If I were to make my own wedding cake though, I'd probably make it with this fresh strawberry frosting. But no, I'm not going to. You can't convince me to.
FRESH STRAWBERRY BUTTERCREAM FROSTING
3/4 c. butter, softened
1/3 c. strawberries, hulled
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
~3 c. powdered sugar
1. Puree strawberries in a food processor until very smooth.
2. In a mixing bowl, beat butter until light and fluffy. Beat in strawberries, vanilla and salt.
3. Begin mixing in powdered sugar about 1 cup at a time. Keep adding more until the frosting reaches the desired thickness. (I never measure the powdered sugar so that's why I don't have a good description for you, but you'll figure it out I'm sure!)
