  • First of all, Place butter in a bowl of a stand mixer or large bowl with an electric mixer. Now Beat on low speed until smooth and creamy. Scrape down the bowl’s sides and bottom.
  • Mix 2 cups (250g), powdered sugar, cocoa pot, vanilla extract, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and 3 Tablespoons heavy cream.
  • Turn mixer on low speed. Mix until combined. Gradually add the remaining powdered sugar.
  • You may notice that the icing appears dry. This is normal. Begin by setting the mixer at low speed and slowly increasing speed to medium-high.
  • Continue beating for several seconds until each Tablespoon of cream is incorporated into the batter. Continue adding cream until the batter is smooth and pipeable. I recommend frosting or piping your cupcakes immediately. You can store buttercream in the post below.

Notes This recipe can be made with either Dutch or natural unsweetened cocoa powder.
