Serves: 7-inch cake Prep Time: Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat


  • 500 grams unsalted butter
  • 900 grams - 1kg of icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk


  1. whip butter for about 1 minute until nice and smooth
  2. gradually add in your icing sugar in batches (I usually add about 3/4 cup each time). Beat on low until the icing sugar has been absorbed. Then beat on medium speed for 1 minute before adding in your next batch of icing sugar. Repeat this process until all the icing sugar has been incorporated.
  3. Add in your milk one tablespoon at a time and beat on medium to high speed for 1 - 2 minutes.

  • I personally have found that by adding a little extra milk and beating the buttercream on high speed for an extra 1 to 2 minutes helps to bread down and dissolve the icing sugar. This should help to eliminate the grainy texture that you can sometimes find with buttercream.
