  • Attach bowl to mixer. Whisk on medium speed for 5 minutes. Increase speed to medium-high, and whisk until stiff, glossy peaks form, about 6 minutes. Reduce speed to medium, and add butter, 1 piece at a time, whisking well after each addition. Whisk in vanilla. Use immediately, or cover, and refrigerate for up to 3 days. (Bring to room temperature, and beat on low speed until smooth before using.)

This recipe is pretty good, and it's easy. Texture was great for piping. I received a lot of compliments on the taste of the frosting. I must say it is a bit too buttery for me, but my tolerance may have decreased because of all the samples I had when I first made it.
