Ingredients
200 gm soft unsalted butter
5 tbsp icing sugar
1 tbsp whipping cream

How to make it
In a large mixing bowl add the butter and whip with a bloom whisk until its white and fluffy. Add in the cream and whip sone more!
Once its nice and fluffy add in a spoon full of the sugar an whip till it dissolves, keep adding the remaining sugar in a similar fashion.
Now give the icing a final whisk and when it forms stiff peaks but is still glossy.
Thats it…your butter cream is ready!

PS: at times the icing may separate and become like granulated butter…don’t worry..all you’ve got to do is just heat it over a double boiler or in a microwave till it melts a little, give a slight whisk and its ready to use!
