Perfect buttercream, the consistency for piping is spot on. Does not contain too much butter. Tips, add colours and flavours as required. Do not be tempted to scimp and not use real butter, although some margerines are suitable for baking, if your piping with this marg is too soft, you need the firmness of butter - 18 Nov 2010

I think there is a typo with this receipe and the amoung of butter should be 275g not 75g. I made it with the 275gm and it was brillent - tasted lovely and looked brillent piped on my cup cakes. - 30 May 2012
