  • Notes:

    • Whipped buttercream should be used immediately. Storing in the refrigerator would make the butter firm up and lose that lovely whipped texture.
    • This buttercream is softer than the traditional American style buttercream and can be used to pipe basic decorations like stars and shells. This frosting will also be great in a layer cake!
    • To Flavor: Experiment with your favorite extracts a little at a time until you get the desired flavor.
    • To Color: Use Icing Colors to brighten up your dessert!
