This is a basic butter icing for cakes. Simple, quick and easy to make.
Butter – 100 gms
Icing Sugar – 200 gms
Edible Food Colour – 1/2 tsp
Any Essence – 1/2 tsp (see note at the end)
1. Lightly the beat the butter in a bowl.
2. Add icing sugar, essence and food colour.
3. Mix well until light and fluffy.
4. Use as required.
The essence can be based on the flavour and usage.
Using vanilla essence will give you a light lemony colour. A raspberry essence will you a dark colour, while pineapple essence will produce a yellow colour, chocolate essence would give a brown colour and a pistachio essence would give you a green colour. So choose appropriately as required and accordingly choose the food colour as well.
