Basic vanilla buttercream icing is perfect for cupcakes or you could use this as a filling alternative in a sandwich cake.

To make chocolate and vanilla icing add a tsb of cocoa powder.

Vanilla Buttercream ingredients

This is literally the easiest recipe ever…

  1. 100g Butter
  2. 250g Icing Sugar
  3. 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  4. 1 Tbsp of milk (to soften)

Beat together all three ingredients until creamy – if you are struggling because it is too thick (it depends on the type of butter you use) then add more milk.

Bish, Bash, Bosh – told you it was simple
