Best ever butter cream frosting

IMG_6318-0.JPG
The silly season is nearly upon us, an activity which I love doing is letting the kids decorate their own cupcakes. To do that you need the best buttercream frosting.

Give this one a try, a great topper on any cupcake or cake.

Pop bowls of lollies out and let kids creativity go wild, if you are sticking to a colour them tailor the lollies and frosting to suit !

125grams softened butter
1 1/2 cups icing sugar
1tsp vanilla essence
1Tb thickened cream

Using an electric mixer, beat butter in a bowl until light and fluffy.
Add icing sugar mixture, cream, vanilla and flavourings (if desired), beating constantly until combined.

Flavouring ideas:
Strawberry: add 1tsp strawberry essence and a few drops of pink food colouring.

Lemon: add half a lemons zest a drop of yellow colouring and 2tsp of the lemon juice.

Chocolate: add 4TB cocoa powder
