Ingredients

3 sticks + 2 tablespoons (375 g) unsalted butter, softened and cut into cubes
4 cups sifted (500 g) confectioners' sugar (icing, powdered), sifted
1 tablespoon (15 ml) milk
1-1/2 teaspoon (7.5 ml) pure vanilla extract
pinch of salt
3 tablespoons (45 ml) strawberry puree
2 oz white chocolate melted with a splash of heavy cream instead of the 2 tbs butter (Optional)


In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, whip butter for 8 minutes on medium speed (I use "4" on my KitchenAid). Butter will become very pale & creamy.


Add remaining ingredients, except strawberry puree, and mix on low speed for 1 minute, then on medium speed for 6 minutes. Frosting will be very light, creamy and fluffy. Add strawberry puree (can be cool, but not frozen or icy) and mix until incorporated.

Made this frosting for a father daughter cake. Chocolate cake with light whipped ganche filling.
