    Submitted by Cheryl Westbury on 21. May 2016 - 09:37.

    The colour comes from the butter. Nuttelex makes a similar tasting icing, but is white. Also dairy free, which can be handy.

  • The only way to get white

    Submitted by Cheryl Westbury on 21. May 2016 - 09:34.

    The only way to get white butter frosting is to use Nuttelex rather than butter. It is lighter tasting, and as it is already white works perfectly. Many Cake Decorators use this.

  • Simple recipe, made 16 medium

    Submitted by ReneTM5 on 15. February 2015 - 14:23.

    Simple recipe, made 16 medium size cupcakes. I only added half the amount of red food colouring as that was all I had, didn't really have the right colour for red velvet but who cares if they taste good! I would suggest cooking at a slightly lower temperature for longer so that the cupcakes rise evenly and look better when frosted. I didn't use the buttercream frosting recipe attached here as this is the exact same icing recipe from another another cupcake recipe on RC, I find that it tastes too buttery as it is not whipped long enough.

    Submitted by Leaps on 6. November 2014 - 13:05.

    Fantastic! The colour and texture of the cupcakes was perfect! The cupcakes weren't overly sweet, the icing was very sweet, together they made a perfect combination! My icing was quite yellow (I think it was the butter as I used store bought icing sugar), but the yellow icing on the red cupcake looked truly spectacular! A definite make-again! Five stars!
