Strawberry Buttercream



This is easily my new favourite icing to use when frosting cupcakes or cakes.  The fresh strawberry flavour is amazing, and it is really easy to make too :)


I used about half a pound (half a container) of strawberries to make this icing. If you are making this when strawberries are out of season (and therefore not as flavourful as they are in the summer), you can add a tablespoon or so of strawberry jam to help amp up the flavour.




This is amazing! It goes so well with almost all flavours of cupcakes.


Strawberry Buttercream
  • 1 cup shortening or butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp butter flavour (if you don't have this, you can add a second tsp of vanilla)
  • 1/2 cup strawberry puree (from about 1/2 lb of strawberries)
  • 4 cups icing sugar
  • extra milk or cream
  1. Cream together the shortening (or butter) and the extracts
  2. Add the icing sugar about 1 cup at a time, mixing well
  3. Add the strawberry puree, and beat the icing until it is fluffy
  4. If the icing is too thick, you can add some milk or cream a couple of teaspoons at a time until the desired consistency is reached
  5. Spread or pipe onto your favourite cupcake or cake
  6. Enjoy!

  5. We just finished [season] 7, xxxtentacion shirt so I know marginally more than viewers at home. But in terms of the next season and the final season, we don find out anything until they release the scripts, and they usually don release the scripts until about a month before shooting, so I won know the end until the very end, really. People are quite surprised by that, but spoilers are so sought after by fans and trolls alike that they try and send the script to the least amount of people possible, so as not fourth of july shirts to leak anything.
