How to make delicious cream cheese buttercream perfect for decorating carrot cakes and red velvet cakes.
This recipe makes enough buttercream to decorate 12 cupcakes in the way shown in the pictures.
If you would like to pipe a buttercream rose (like these
) then this recipe will be enough to pipe 14 cupcakes.
If you would like to pipe a taller swirl (like these
) then this recipe will be enough for 9 cupcakes.
You may find you have a small amount of buttercream leftover after piping as it's easier to pipe neatly if you have a little more than you need.
For best results, I recommend using the metric measurements rather than US cups as measurement will be more accurate. For more information about the US cups conversions please take a look at my interactive calculator
