    About this recipe: This is a sophisticated twist on buttercream icing, which is absolutely delicious! Use on any type of cake, such as a vanilla, chocolate or carrot cake. Just don't substitute margarine for butter in this recipe!

    Serves: 12 

    • 110g butter
    • 500g icing sugar
    • 4 tablespoons milk
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:6min  ›  Ready in:11min 

    1. Place the butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until the butter is a nice tan colour. If it gets dark brown or black you have allowed it to burn too long. When butter has been "burned" remove the saucepan from the heat.
    2. Slowly mix in icing sugar and vanilla. Beat on high speed of an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in the milk a tablespoon at a time until desired spreading consistency is achieved. Use icing immediately, as this icing will set quickly.
