Easy Buttercream

Easy Buttercream


Servings : 12 cupcakes.

  • 250 g unsalted butter
  • 500 g icing sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • approx.
  • 1 tbsp milk – I use skimmed but any is fine


  1. Cut the butter (250g) into cubes (about 1?) and beat in an electic mixer until soft
  2. Add the icing sugar (500g) and beat until fully combined
  3. You’ll find that at first it’ll start to look lumpy but keep persevering and it’ll smooth out
  4. Add the vanilla extract (½ tsp) and mix until fully combined
  5. Take a look at the consistency of the icing, is it spreadable? If not add ½ tsp milk and mix until fully combined
  6. Check the consistency again and repeat until it is just spreadable
