Fluffy, smooth, and wonderfully sweet, strawberry buttercream frosting is the perfect topping for your favorite cake, cupcakes, or cookies.
If you’ve never made your own frosting, let me beg you to start. There’s absolutely no comparison between a homemade version and the cloyingly sweet kind you buy at the store. Making a buttercream like this from scratch isn’t as difficult as you might think it is; if you don’t believe me, check out the simple four-ingredient recipe below.
This particular strawberry buttercream frosting is smooth and rich and carries the perfect touch of berries. Because you make the strawberry sauce yourself, using real berries, there’s no artificial flavor or unappealing aftertaste. The subtle strawberry flavor perks up plain cupcakes or plays well with flavored cake. Or, don’t ask me how I know this, it tastes divine straight from the spatula.
