Buttercream Frosting Recipes

Buttercream
Cream together 1/2 cup (1 stick) softened butter and 1/2 cup shortening, or use all butter (2 Sticks). Gradually add 4 cups (about a lb.) of powdered sugar, 2 Tbs Milk, and 1 tsp real vanilla extract. Blend until creamy. For a smoother creamier spreadable icing, add 1 additional Tbs of milk. This can be used to frost cakes and cookies, and can be used to decorate them, as well.
Lite Cocoa Buttercream --to use on chocolate cake
Melt 1 stick of softened butter. In a medium bowl, mix 2/3 cup cocoa and three cups powdered sugar. Stir dry mixture into butter gradually, alternating with 1/3 cup milk, a little at a time, on medium speed until spreadable. Add 1 tsp vanilla and blend well.
Lemon Buttercream 
Whip 1 cup softened butter until creamy and gradually add 4 cups (about a lb.) of powdered sugar, 2 Tbs Milk, and 1 tsp lemon extract. Blend until creamy.
Cinnamon Buttercream
Cream together 1/2 cup softened butter and 1/2 cup shortening, or use all butter. Add 4 cups (about a lb.) of powdered sugar, 2 Tbs Milk, and 1 tsp real vanilla extract. Blend until creamy.  Add 1/2- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
