  4. Add sugar and beat until fluffy. 
  5. Scrape the sides of the bowl and on medium speak beat the eggs one at a time and vanilla until just mixed in. 
  6. Scrape the sides of the bowl on more time to make sure it’s all mixed together and add the dry ingredients in three times alternating with the milk. Make sure to start with the dry and end with the dry.

  4. Add vanilla extract and once powdered sugar is fully incorporated, bring the mixer to medium high speed and beat for another 2 minutes to make the buttercream fluffy and airy.
