The Easiest Buttercream Frosting

This fluffy frosting is all I use for decorating stacked cakes and cakes with intricate frosting designs. This frosting sets almost immediately after placing it in the fridge and sets with a fondant like finish which I absolutely adore!

The ratio I use for butter cream frosting is 1:2 parts butter to powdered sugar.


  • 300g unsalted butter (softened at room temperature)

  • 600g powdered sugar

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • [optional] 2-4 tbsp whole milk (depending on how thick or thin you want your frosting to be)


  1. In a stand mixer/using a hand mixer, whip your butter for about 5-10 minutes until it becomes light and fluffy (the butter will become paler in color and almost double in volume)

  2. Gradually add in your powdered sugar until fully incorporated (make sure you add it gradually not all at once as a cloud of powdered sugar will form when mixed hehe)

  3. Finally add in your vanilla, salt and milk[optional] and mix until fully incorporated.

  4. At this point, you can add a few drops of food coloring to make any color of your choice.

  5. And voilà you have got yourself a bowl of the best butter cream ever!
