Buttermilk Icing

While it may seem strange to add cider vinegar to icing, it highlights the pleasant acidity in the buttermilk and balances out the sweetness of the powdered sugar. This tangy frosting can be used to top many different desserts, including our Pumpkin Cupcakes.

Instructions

  1. 1Whisk together all ingredients in a medium bowl until smooth and well incorporated. Store covered in the refrigerator until ready to use.
