Buttercream Frosting
  • 1 cup butter (room temperature)
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 drops pink food coloring
  1. In large mixer bowl beat butter with sugar and add in heavy cream, vanilla until mixed smooth.
  2. place 1/2-3/4 cup frosting to be tinted pink in a separate bowl, you can add additional flavors as well, such as peppermint extract 1/4 teaspoon.
  3. Spread the pink frosting on the first layer of cake, add the second layer, top that layer with white frosting and then pipe the edge with a star tip and add the candy canes on top.
  4. It is best to add the candy canes to a chilled cake if you are not going to be eating it immediately as the weight of the candy canes will slide on room temperature cake that has not been chilled.
