It couldn't be easier to make Chocolate Buttercream Icing in your Thermomix!
This Chocolate Buttercream Icing recipe is a favourite of mine and I regularly make it to go on top of my vanilla cupcakes and butter cake recipe.
Tips for Making Chocolate Buttercream Icing in your Thermomix:
- The time it takes to mix your butter will be impacted by the temperature. The times in this recipe are based on butter which has just reached room temperature.
- This icing is best made just before it's needed.
- If you are making this icing in warm conditions, you may like to pop it into the fridge for 10 minutes to chill before using it - especially if you are going to pipe it.
- Once you have iced your cakes/cupcakes, place them either in an airtight container or wrap with cling wrap.
- You can use icing sugar mixture for this recipe, however you may need to add an extra ½ tablespoon of milk.
- You can double this recipe if you are planning to ice a larger cake or more than 12 cupcakes. Please not the time it takes to mix your buttercream will increase.
- If you find that your buttercream is a little dry, add an extra tablespoon of milk to the recipe.
