Pineapple Buttercream Frosting recipe
2 sticks butter, room temperature
1 cup vegetable shortening, room temperature
8 cups sifted powdered sugar
5 tablespoons of whole milk
3 teaspoons pineapple extract
Yellow and green food coloring
Whip the butter and shortening until they’re smooth. Add in the sugar, 2 cups at a time and continue to beat. Add in the milk in between alternating with the sugar. Beat on high until the frosting is fluffy. You want it to be thick, but not too thick where it won’t pipe smoothly. Divide the frosting up into 2 bowls to add food coloring to each of them. We used a tiny bit of gel food coloring to get the desired green and yellow we wanted. Watch the video and get frostin’!!
