Ingredients

  • 140g (9 1/2 tbsp) butter
  • 225g (1 2/3 cup) icing sugar, sieved
  • 210g (1 cup) cream cheese
  • 7.5ml (1 1/2 tsp) vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Leave the butter to warm to room temperature and cut into cubes. Place the butter in a bowl and beat with a stand or hand mixer on high speed until pale and fluffy, which should take about 2-3 minutes.
  2. Beat the sugar into the butter for 3-5 minutes until well mixed.
  3. Don’t forget to scrape the bowl occasionally with a rubber spatula to ensure that all ingredients are blended well together.
  4. Add the cream cheese and any flavouring of your choice to the mixture and beat until fluffy.
  5. Spread, spoon or pipe the icing on cooled down cupcakes.
