I always thought American Buttercream was the easiest frosting to make, but Russian Buttercream is just as easy. The texture is similar to Swiss Meringue Buttercream, silk smooth and pipes like a dream. The flavor is more balanced since it’s not as sweet as American Buttercream, and it’s made with sweetened condensed milk, which also adds a unique flavor. I usually add vanilla bean paste, but you can also use almond extract, lemon or any other flavoring your prefer.
