White chocolate buttercream icing

    10 min

    Yummy, sweet icing, to match with the damson and white chocolate cupcake recipe!...or just any cupcakes :)! This goes particularly well with regular chocolate cupcakes, vanilla cupcakes, and coconut cupcakes.

    Makes: 12 covers 12-15 cupcakes

    • 110g unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 250g icing sugar
    • 150g white chocolate
    • 1 tablespoon semi-skimmed milk (possibly)

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:10min 

    1. Beat the butter and half the icing sugar together until smooth (this may take a while and is a bit of a pain). Keep adding the icing sugar in bits and mix until all is smooth and like a paste.
    2. Melt the white chocolate and add to the mixture and mix until smooth.
    3. This is the maybe bit . . . depending on what white chocolate you use, it'll alter the runniness of your icing . . . so you may have to add the milk (maybe more than 1 tablespoon) or you may need to add more icing sugar. But it is very easily fixed.
    4. Don't forget to mix your icing between icing each cupcake so it stays smooth!

    OMG...! Made this to top some Banana Buns that my son and I had made and I had some fantastic comments about the icing..!! It is quite sweet but very very moorish and compliments the Banana Buns beautifully..!! Will defo be using again...might try with milk or dark chocolate next...!!  -  05 Aug 2012
