Buttercream Frosting Recipe

buttercream8
Makes about 1 cup frosting/icing.

Preparation time: about 10 minutes

We use a 20ml tablespoon and 250ml measuring cup for all of our recipes.

75g butter, softened (we use salted butter)
1/4 tsp (1.25ml) vanilla extract
145g (1 cup) icing sugar, sifted
1 tablespoon (20g) cream (35-40 percent fat)

Using an electric mixer or electric hand-held beaters, beat butter and vanilla in a medium bowl until creamy.

Add the icing sugar in three batches, beating for about one minute after each addition, and stopping the machine a couple of times to scrape down the side and base of the bowl.

Add the cream and beat until completely incorporated.

Does this need to be stored in the fridge, if not being used straight away?

hi i was wondering if you can use milk instead of cream? or if there's another substitute?

i know some other frosting recipes call for milk but will it work for this one?

If I want to cover 24 large cupcakes(in your wedding cupcakes) how many times more would I have to make this, double or triple?

I covered about 18 cupcakes with this recipe- I didn't have cream at the time and just used milk instead.
It worked quite well.

If I would like chocolate buttercream frosting do I just add cocoa? If so how much?

How long would a cake covered with this frosting last ?
In the fridge ? Or can it be left out ?
