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.
165 grams butter, softened
4 cups icing sugar
40 ml milk
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
4 drops of food colouring
Directions Prep:10min › Ready in:10min
Place butter in microwave for a few seconds if it is not very soft.
In a medium bowl cream the butter, icing sugar and milk until it is light and fluffy. This may take up to 5 minutes.
Add the vanilla and food colouring, and beat until well combined. Fill piping bag with icing, and decorate your creations.
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.
