This is not only simple, its sweet and buttery without leaving a greasy film on the roof of your mouth, as most corporate bakery frostings do. This recipe is a tradition among bakers in my family, probably because the recipe is so forgiving and personally i've actually never seen the addition of salt before but what is a better foil for rich, sweet, vanilla than salt? spread to the masses what my family (and domino's sugar) already know, buttercream is best when left to its roots, powdered sugar, butter, liquid and flavoring. simple, pure, just like mom's.
