Mint Buttercream Frosting


2 cups (4 sticks) room temperature salted butter

2 lb confectioners sugar (1 bag powdered sugar)

1 tsp. vanilla

2 tsp. mint extract

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 – 1/3 cup evaporated milk

green food coloring


  1. Cream butter until light and fluffy. This is the most important step and may take between 5-8 minutes for butter to double in size. Continually stop mixture to scrape down the sides of the bowl to insure all of the butter attains the same consistency.
  2. Add the salt and powdered sugar beat on medium high until dry mixture fully incorporates with the butter.
  3. Add extracts and 1/4 cup of evaporated milk. Begin whipping the buttercream mixture on high for another 5-8 minutes until the frosting becomes super light and fluffy. Add additional evaporated milk during this process until the desired consistency is reached.
  4. Add green food coloring with a toothpick, mixing in between applications until mint green color is achieved.
