2-2 1/2cuppowdered sugarsifted
Remove the creme fraiche from the refrigerator. (If the creme fraiche is too cold, it can cause the butter mixture to break.)
Beat the softened butter in the bowl of an electric mixer on medium speed until it is fluffy.
Add the creme fraiche. Continue to mix until the creme fraiche is fully incorporated and the frosting looks creamy.
Add the sifted powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, with the mixture on low. Continue to add the powdered sugar until you’ve added 2 cups. If it is not at your desired thickness, continue to added powdered sugar, 1/4 cup at a time up to 2 1/2 cups. (The final frosting will be slightly softer than buttercream.)
Mix on medium speed until the frosting is completely smooth.
