Tasty homemade buttercream frosting with a pretty rainbow swirl design.
Prep Time 8 minutes
Total Time 8 minutes
Servings 24 cupcakes worth
- 1 cup butter unsalted and softened
- 3 cups powdered sugar depending on the humidity/heat that day sometimes I have to add about 1/2 - 1 cup more, play around with it until you reach the consistency you desire
- 1/4 cup whipping cream
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 pink food coloring
- 1 blue food coloring
- 1 yellow food coloring
In your mixer add the butter and slowly begin to beat it on a medium setting. Once it's soft, add the sugar.
On a slow speed mix until incorporated (and to prevent sugar going everywhere) and then beat until fluffy. This takes a few minutes.
Scrape the bowl, add the cream and vanilla.
Turn the beater to high and let it whip up for about five minutes. You may need to pause and scrape the bowl a few times.
Divide the frosting into four bowls: leave one the original color and then color the three with the colors your chose.
Spoon the colors into a piping bag, focusing on the sides more so the colors come out at once and pipe!
