The perfect frosting topping to Scrumptious Strawberry Cake.
- Allow butter to thaw so it cremes well. Then mix butter in electric mixer before adding in other ingrediants.
- Mix in pwdered sugar then strawberries. Mix until blended together. If icing is not fluffy and thick add more powdered sugar until you acieve a fluffy thick frosting. (The butter cannot be hot).
This was a yummy frosting! I varied from the directions a bit, though. I pureed the fresh strawberries so there would not be chunks in the icing. I also added a dash of salt to cut the sweetness a little. I prob had more than the 1/2 c of strawberries so I ended up adding an extra cup of p. sugar to thicken it a bit and refridgerated before using. It was still a bit melty so I may add more next time. Thanks for the recipe!
This is excellent icing. I pretty much followed Chefcrystal's changes--I pureed the strawberries, added a pinch of salt and a dash of vanilla. Especially with pureed strawberries, the icing piped beautifully onto my son's cupcakes, and had a lovely, fresh strawberry flavor. Will definitely make this again!
