Buttercream icing is the ideal way to turn a simple cake into something a little bit special, and this recipe takes just 5 minutes to make! Deliciously smooth and creamy, this buttercream icing is perfect for fairy cakes, cupcakes and Victoria sponges and this recipe will create enough buttercream to cover an 8" circular cake. Why not try salted chocolate buttercream? All you need to do is add 200g of melted dark chocolate and 1/2 teaspoon of table salt.

Method

  1. Bring your butter to room temperature so that it is softened, then using either a hand or electric mixer beat together the butter adding in the icing sugar gradually until fully incorporated.

  2. Add in the milk and vanilla and continue to beat until the buttercream is light and fluffy. This might take a few minutes, the longer that you beat your buttercream for the light in texture it will be.

  3. Once the buttercream is ready, fill a piping bag fitted with a nozzle with the buttercream to pipe decorations on your cupcakes or alternatively, use a pallet knife to smooth your buttercream inside or over your cake.
