Whip up your best-ever batch of buttercream icing using this step-by-step guide. With an irresistibly creamy texture, it's a great addition to your standard bakes.
Start by beating room temperature butter with an electric mixer until as white as possible, scraping down the sides of the bowl as you go.
Add the icing sugar mixture a little at a time and keep on beating. Once all the icing sugar is incorporated into the butter, you’ll have a nice smooth icing.
Beat in a little milk to make the icing nice and spreadable.
Now you’re ready to spread the buttercream over a homemade or store-bought cake. Spread the buttercream over the tops and sides of the cake.
