Instructions
  1. Cream together the butter, icing sugar and vanilla in the mixer for a long time (aprox 10-15 mins or more) until the icing has become really light in colour.
  2. Add the milk and beat further (aprox 5 mins)
  3. This is a very straight forward recipe, but it is the patience of beating the buttercream for a long time which is the sercret behind its success. The friction created when beating works to reduce the size of the sugar particles and create a softer eating quality.
  4. It needs to be at perfect room temperature to pipe well.
