Salted chocolate buttercream

  • Total Time

    10m
  • Serves

    1


What better way to top a chocolate cupcake than with an indulgent creamy salted chocolate buttercream? This buttercream will really lift your cupcake to showstopper level and it is really simple to make. One serving of the buttercream will be sufficient to cover an 8" cake or a batch of cupcakes.

Method

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

  2. In a separate bowl melt the chocolate, either in a glass heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water or by short bursts in the microwave.

  3. Add the melted chocolate and milk in to the butter and icing sugar mix and blend together until the buttercream becomes light and fluffy. The longer that you beat the buttercream for the lighter in texture it will become.

  4. Finish the buttercream by mixing in the salt.
