To make the buttercream use an electric mixer or hand mixer to mix the icing sugar and butter together until you get a breadcrumb texture, then add the milk and mix on high speed until and fluffy. Add a few drops of green food colouring to the buttercream and mix until you get a ‘Christmas tree’ green colour.
