How to make Buttercream in a Thermomix

In my opinion no birthday cake is complete without a thick layer of buttercream smeared all over it – yum!  This is my go to buttercream recipe that I’ve been making for years now and it takes a lot of self control to stop myself from licking the bowl when I’m done!


This Thermomix Buttercream recipe makes enough to generously cover one 20cm round cake.  If you would like your buttercream to be paler in colour, simply mix it for longer.  You can also add a couple of drops of food colouring at step 3 for coloured buttercream.

  1. hi, do you think I can add strawberry jam to make it strawberry buttercream icing for a cake? I am looking at your strawberry frosting too and just not sure which one to make. I want to use it as a filling too ( I am making strawberry layers cake – vanilla cake, but with a kind of strawberry filling, thinking strawberry buttercream icing).

    1. Absolutely!! You could definitely add strawberry jam!! YUM! I think the strawberry buttercream idea sounds great!

  3. This buttercream is amazing! It has worked out well for me every time I have made it – twice with cocoa powder in place of the vanilla and I made it today as per the recipe. Light and fluffy each time. Thanks for an easy recipe for a fairly dodgy baker 😉
