Today I’m sharing with you how to make perfect buttercream Icing. Buttercream frosting is a staple for cupcakes, cakes and many other baked goods.
There are a few tips and tricks that I am going to share with you to get the most perfect buttercream Icing.
Enough for 12 Cupcakes
250g / 1 Cup Butter (salted or unsalted)
375g 3 Cups Icing Sugar | Powdered Sugar | Confectioners Sugar
30ml / 2 Tablespoons Milk
Add room temperature butter to a bowl. Beat the butter for 5 minutes until it has become light and airy, doubled in size and lost most of it’s colour. Start adding the icing sugar half a cup at a time, beating for about a minute in between each addition. Use the milk to thin out the consistency of the icing, add it a teaspoon at a time. This is also the time to add any flavourings or colourings that you would like. This icing can last in the fridge for a few weeks or the freezer for 3 months. When you are ready to use just let it get back up to room temperature.
