Recipe's preparation

  1. This is a very easy recipe it’s keeps its form, it’s easy to pipe with and colours well …and tastes amazing! but … you need patients. It is the patients of beating for a long time on a low speed which is the secret! The friction created when beating works to reduce the size of the sugar particles and creates a softer silky eating quality.

    Add icing sugar to the bowl under the MC place a piece of paper towel then mill 1 min on Speed 5
    Scrape down and repeat-Remove the paper towel from under the MC

    Add unsalted butter (room temperature) and Vanilla extract to the bowl with the MC mix until the icing become really light in colour.

    Mix slowly for 5 minutes on Speed 2 - Scrape Down
    - remove MC and repeat this step again (10mins all up)

    Add the Milk mix for 1min on Speed 3 Scrape down
    Repeat this step again until mixture is combined

The buttercream needs to be at room temperature to pipe well but if you make it a few days beforehand just take it out of the refrigerator let it get to room temperature beat on Speed 5 for 30 seconds repeat if necessary! But don’t over beat. This mixture should be lite and fluffy.
