About this recipe: Great for any cake or cupcake, easy to pipe, can also be used on biscuits. I recommend this icing if you have to take your cake/s to a party, as plastic wrap will not stick to it and make a mess. This made icing for 24 cupcakes.


Serves: 24 

  • 165 grams butter, softened
  • 4 cups icing sugar
  • 40 ml milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 4 drops of food colouring

Prep:10min  ›  Ready in:10min 

  1. Place butter in microwave for a few seconds if it is not very soft.
  2. In a medium bowl cream the butter, icing sugar and milk until it is light and fluffy. This may take up to 5 minutes.
  3. Add the vanilla and food colouring, and beat until well combined. Fill piping bag with icing, and decorate your creations.
  4. Any leftover icing will keep in a tightly closed container for a few days, simply melt it in the microwave before use, or let it reach room temperature on the kitchen bench.
