About this recipe: This buttercream icing is made with fresh strawberries for an intense and real strawberry flavour and colour without using extracts or jelly. It involves making a strawberry puree. If you love strawberries, you'll love this icing!
For more intense strawberry flavor, reduce strawberry puree longer until desired intensity is reached.
Great idea, using fresh fruit. Do you think it would work with frozen? (when strawberries are out of season) I suppose, just reduce the wetter defrosted frozen fruit for longer. Very nice piping, btw! What nozzle did you use? - 18 May 2016

I really wanted that strawberry flavor to shine--what I did was add one teaspoon of strawberry extract and add an additional teaspoon of confectioners' sugar to make up for the additional liquid. I also added a dash of salt because Grandma taught me to always do so when making homemade frosting. This was FANTASTIC. It turned out like bakery frosting and the family kept eating the frosting off the cake.........and leaving the cake! - 23 May 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
