Honey Buttercream Frosting

I found this recipe at the Cupcake Project here I used this frosting on the honey sugar cookies to give them a bit more sweetness. I find myself eating this frosting raw. The sour cream adds a wonderful flavor to it. Again, the honey flavor is subtle.

Yield: Enough frosting to cover 12 cupcakes with a small swirl


1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup full-fat sour cream


In a medium-sized mixing bowl, beat butter for three minutes with an electric mixer on high speed until light and fluffy.
Mix in powdered sugar a little bit at a time until fully combined.
Mix in honey and sour cream until combined.
Spread or pipe onto cooled cupcakes.
