  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract

  Method

  • Beat butter using a mixer until it’s soft and creamy, about a minute.
  • Sift Icing sugar twice and add to the butter.
  • Mix at very low speed, gradually increasing the speed to medium. Beat for about 2 minutes, until its well mixed and creamy.
  • Add in Vanilla extract, or any other extract/flavouring of your choice. At this point, you may also add in a few drops of colouring to tint the buttercream. Beat for a few seconds.
  • Your frosting is ready for use :)

 

WHIPPED CREAM FROSTING

 

 Ingredients

  • 2 Cups whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons Icing sugar

Method

  • Whip cream using electric beaters till it reaches soft peaks. Add in icing sugar and continue whipping till its firm (i.e. firm peaks form when you lift beaters).
  • Cream is ready for frosting.

* Please note that whipped cream does not hold well in warm temperatures, so its best refrigerated the soonest possible.
