Sour Cream Vanilla Frosting


This frosting is deliciously sweet and sour, smooth and creamy. If your frosting comes out a little thick for your liking, just spoon in more sour cream until the desired consistency is reached.


  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 5-1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla


  1. In a medium-size bowl, mix the sugar and butter until well combined.
  2. Beat in the sour cream and vanilla until smooth.
  3. Spread on cooled cake or cupcakes and top with cinnamon or bits of grated carrot, or just leave it plain.
