Buttercream Frosting

Servings : 2 cups of frosting

The perfect frosting/icing for cakes, this is the ideal kind of frosting for decorating.


  • 3/4 cup butter, softened (150gm) (5oz)
  • 2 cups confectioner's (icing) sugar (250gm) (8oz)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla essence
  • 2 tsp. hot water


Beat together the butter and icing with a mixer until well combined, smooth and creamy.
Add the vanilla and hot water.
Beat some more and use!

If you want it to have a chocolaty taste and colour, substitute the vanilla essence with 2 tbsp. cocoa powder. For a different colour, just add a few drops of the colour of your choice and mix.
