Russian Buttercream

Makes enough to ice 12 cupcakes Prep Time 6 minutes   Rated:

WELL, this is all due to cycling! If you have been in lockdown like the rest of the world, you will know that exercise became a bit of a thing. We bought a stationary bike as I need to cycle due to a knee injury. I started cycling around the pastry shops of Europe on YouTube which has inspired many a baking session immediately following cycling...not always the best sequence, but never mind! Covid and all that! #facepalm

I saw this recipe for Russian Buttercream and was intrigued given our recent foray into both French and Italian buttercream on the Insider Club. This recipe is ULTRA simple. Bree as our official cakery team member was impressed and is using this recipe more than Ermine Frosting. (Shock and horror as we absolutely LOVE that recipe too!)

So give it a whirl, we have other plans ready to go on a buttercream challenge. There are so many options and so little cake!
