  • Notes:

    • This buttercream recipe is for medium consistency, which is excellent for piping decorations like rosettes and dots. However, it will need to be thinned for frosting birthday cakes and borders.
    • Frozen strawberries will likely add too much liquid to the buttercream so fresh strawberries are recommended.
    • To store: Frosting should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 1 week or freezer for up to 6 weeks.
