Extra Special Butter cream icing
Ideal for frosting and borders
1 cup butter
2 cups icing sugar
1tsp vanilla essence
Cream butter until fluffy and you hear a slapping sound (please don't slap anyone 😆). Add sugar and vanilla essence & continue creaming until well blended. Beat at high speed until icing is fluffy.
Tip* When using for a cake the maximum time I mix the icing is 5-7 minutes.
When using the icing for cupcakes I make sure the icing has enough air and is lighter, I beat it for 10-15 minutes.
