Perfect light and fluffy buttercream
Recipe type: Baking
1 Cup | 250g Butter
3 Cups | 375g Powdered Sugar/Icing Sugar
1 | 5ml Teaspoon Vanilla
2 | 30ml Tablespoons Milk
Add the butter to a mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer and beat for 5 minutes until light, pale and doubled in volume.
Gradually add the sugar ½ cup at a time beating well in between each addition.
Once all of the sugar has been incorporated add the vanilla and milk (see note) and beat until combined.
Make sure the butter is at room temperature before making this buttercream. Remove it from the fridge 1-2 hours before.
Only add the milk gradually if you would like to thin out the buttercream.
Optionally add coloring and/or other flavorings at the same time as you add the vanilla and milk
