Peanut butter buttercream

This frosting tastes like fudge!! You can adjust the sweetness by adding a little more salt. It will crust over pretty quickly, you can lengthen the time by adding more cream.

Great recipe! I halfed the recipe and it was great. I had enough to fill my 8 in. cake and fill 12 cupcakes. I would have had even more but I couldn't quit eating the filling. So Yummy! Also, I used unsalted butter, didn't adjust the salt amount and used 1/2 and 1/2. This is a winner!

This frosting was amazing!! I made it four days ago and am still eating it by the spoonful! As for my cakes, it frosted and filled a 6in frosted 18 cupcakes and could have frosted 12 more cupcakes. I also used salted butter and didn't adjust the salt and it still tasted wonderful.
