American Buttercream Recipe

Posted by Jacinta Walker on


  • 125g unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 1 1/2 cups soft icing mixture (or pure icing sugar)
  • 1 tablespoon milk


  1. Using an electric mixer, beat butter in a bowl until pale.
  2. Gradually add icing sugar mixture and milk, beating constantly until combined.
  3. Add any colour or flavour and mix for 3 minutes on medium speed, then reduce speed to lowest speed and mix for 2 minutes to reduce air bubbles.

This quantity covers a 20cm round cake or 12 piped cupcakes.
