How to make strawberry buttercream

This buttercream is coloured and flavoured using only strawberries. The strawberries turn the buttercream such a pretty colour. To make the buttercream using fresh or frozen strawberries, the first step is to boil the strawberries down into a paste.

To do this, add the pureed strawberries to a small saucepan. If you don’t want any strawberry seeds in your buttercream strain the puree before adding it to the saucepan, but I left the seeds in mine.

Heat the saucepan over a low heat, and allow to boil while stirring regularly. Continue until all of the liquid has evaporated from the puree and you are left with a paste that resembles tomato paste. Allow to cool completely before using.

Once the strawberry paste is completely cool, it’s time to make a start on the buttercream. Add the softened butter to the bowl of a stand mixer and beat until pale. Add half of the icing sugar and beat until light and fluffy.

Next, add the strawberry paste and vanilla extract. Beat once again until well combined. Finally, add the remaining icing sugar and milk and beat until light and fluffy. Spread the buttercream over a cooled cake.
