I had some spare time today and with Cooper having a play date l thought l would whip up some cupcakes.
I wanted to try a new buttercream recipe, I stumbled across this one. I was quite intrigued with adding so much milk as well as the cornflour. I was quite surprised the icing was so light and fluffy, it actually had the same consistency as whipped cream it also doesn't have that overpowering butter taste.
225grams of butter
1 cup of milk
1 cup of icing sugar
1 tsp of vanilla extract
2 tblsp of corn flour
Heat milk and cornflour on stove and whisk until mixture has thickened
Let it cool completely
Cream sugar and butter until light and fluffy
