There is one thing that my mother-in-law got me hooked on early on when I met my husband….her mother’s secret buttercream frosting! Whenever it became time for birthday celebrations or special occasions, I silently prayed she’d be making cupcakes with her signature frosting, and the truth is I still do. Fast forward a handful of years and I suppose I put in my dues, in part due to a few grand babies being added to the family, I was finally privied to the highly coveted recipe for this delicious and dangerously addicting frosting. It’s a little time consuming, and we are not going for healthy here, but worth the time & calories. Of course both of our daughters love this frosting on cupcakes, but my mother-in-law’s showstopper is a buttercream frosted white layer cake adorned with sweetened coconut flakes. The absolute best is when she adds a little lemon curd between the layers of white cake to add a little zing! Alright, time to just get into the recipe already.
