My girlfriends and I recently hosted a bridal shower for our friend Kristy.
We decided on a Luau theme and it was so fun!
I was in charge of the cupcakes, so I decided to frost them with her wedding colors of Kelly Green and Orange. I added a few pink ones as well, because you know how I love pink!
I decorated them with little umbrellas for our luau theme. Bekka's mom also brought us some hibiscus flowers to use, which really added a nice touch.
My Go-To Buttercream Frosting Recipe
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
6 - 8 cups confectioner's sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 - 3 T milk or whipping cream
Place the butter in a large mixing bowl. Add 4 cups of the sugar and then the milk and vanilla.
With an electric mixer, beat until smooth and creamy, about 3-5 minutes on medium speed.
Gradually add the remaining sugar, 1 cup at a time, beating well after each addition, until the frosting is a good spreading consistency. Frosting can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
