250g Pure Icing sugar (do not use soft icing mixture)

500g Butter at room temperature

1tsp thickened cream or milk (optional)

1tsp vanilla extract



  • Beat butter on high speed using an electric mixer, until light and fluffy. The longer you beat the butter, the lighter the butter cream will be.
  • Add in the sifted icing sugar a little at a time until fully combined.
  • Add the vanilla extract, and continue mixing.
  • Add cream or milk depending on the required consistency for your project.
