Not to compete with these experts recipes, but I make a simpler butter cream that I find delightful. All I do, is cream 2 sticks of butter with an electric mixer and add powder sugar by the quarter cup until I reach a desired consistency/sweetness (about a box total). I also add a bit of milk to make it lighter. To flavor, I add a drop of vanilla extract. To make a chocolate version I add a few tablespoons of cocoa- unsweetened is fine because of all the sugar. This version is super easy and fast and delish.
