Basic Vanilla Buttercream

This is a really simple and basic vanilla buttercream recipe that you can add flavours to for making that buttercream that is really wow!


  • 200g Icing Sugar
  • 100g Butter
  • 1tsp of Vanilla Flavouring (I use extract NEVER essence)
  • 1tbs of Milk if needed
Simply add the ingredients into a bowl and mix together - its that easy, you can also add food colouring to the mix or jam if you prefer a colour and taste addition to the buttercream.

Tip - If it starts to split or your butter is too warm simply add more Icing Sugar until the consistency is correct. You are looking for a spreadable mix which will hold its shape.
