    Default Buttercream Icing

    Please! Tell me your best buttercream icing recipe!

    I have googled (inc Wilton website) and there are so many variations.

    Do you have a no fail recipe that you could share with me ?

    Wilton make a mixture that you blend with icing sugar and milk, it's my favourite!!!!

    Default Buttercream Icing

    50gm butter softened ( not microwaved!) with 1 cup icing mixture. Beat till well mixed. Add 1 tblsp boiling water till creamy.

    I usually add a splash of essence ie coconut, lemon, rose if it compliments the cake.

    For chocolate icing mix 1 tblsp of cocoa with butter before icing mixture.

    I use this and love it. This quantity is probably enough for 12 cupcakes.

    125g butter (softened)
    240g (1.5 cups) icing sugar mixture
    2 tablespoons milk

    Beat butter in bowl with electric mixer until as pale as possible. Gradually beat in half the sugar, milk and then remaining sugar.

    Enjoy!
