Quick, easy and very moorish buttercream icing.

Ingredients (serves 12)

  • 3 cups Icing sugar
  • 1 cup Soft butter
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons Flavouring - vanilla


  1. Whisk butter for approximately 5 minutes until light and fluffy. The colour should become much lighter too.
  2. Slowly add in icing sugar and whisk for again approximately 5 minutes. Taste a small amount to feel for a smooth texture.
  3. Add in your flavouring of choice, whisk until combined, and use however you choose! Warning - very moorish!

  • I am going to use this buttercream icing recipe the next time I bake a sponge cake.


  • A very simple buttercream recipe! Thank you. I like to add some Nutella to mine.


  • Hmmmm yum….great recepie easy will do next time I do cakes


  • Good for cake decorating, but I have to say I’ve never really liked the flavour of butter icing. And there’s usually a lot of it on a cupcake


  • Thanks a handy recipe for my cakes!


  • Buttercream icing is the best and I love it smothered on freshy made cupcakes.
