  • Notes:

    • This frosting is similar to the traditional American buttercream frosting and is great for piping decorations or frosting layer cakes.
    • White chocolate bars are recommended for this recipe. White chocolate chips won’t melt as well and can affect the consistency of the frosting.
    • To Store: Frosting should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2 weeks and can be frozen for up to 6 weeks. Bring back to room temperature and re-whip before using.
    • To Color: Use Icing Colors or food coloring to tint frosting to any color without disturbing the consistency of the frosting.
    • To cut sweetness: If your buttercream is too sweet, add a pinch of salt. Make sure it dissolves completely once mixed in. You can also opt for 1/2 cup salted butter rather than 1/2 cup unsalted butter to avoid overly sweet buttercream.
