HOW DO YOU MAKE DIFFERENT BUTTERCREAM FROSTING FLAVORS?
There’s no limit to the possibilities. Consider flavorings like salted caramel, fresh citrus, spices, teas, coffees, almond, peppermint, or other less expected extracts like orange blossom and rose water. Or, make a grown-up buttercream with flavored liqueurs – raspberry, orange, coffee, coconut. Put your imagination to the test and start creating.
Take a basic vanilla buttercream and add unsweetened cocoa powder, a little extra cream and sugar to it and you've got a rich, chocolate buttercream. Chopped strawberries or pulverized freeze-dried strawberries will turn a basic buttercream into a fruity strawberry buttercream. For chocolate cupcakes that are truly next level, try this intensely flavorful Espresso Buttercream.
