Cook for 15min at 80deg on speed 4

Pour into bowl , cover with plastic wrap, pushing plastic down onto surface of mixture.

Cool completely.

In clean TM bowl add sugar and pulverise for 15secsonds on speed 9.

Add butter and chop for 5-10 seconds on speed 7.

Insert Butterfly and aerate butter and sugar for 1-2 minutes on speed 3 with MC off to allow air in bowl.

    Hi Steph, would you recommend this for icing a children’s birthday cake? Will it hold lolly decorations etc on the sides? We’re not overly fond of sweet icing, hence I’m looking for something recommended as yummy that can also stay put for a day. Thanks for your advice and great website :)

    Hi thanks for your query.

    Yes as long as the lollies arent too big I think you would have no trouble putting lollies on top of this icing. It is quite sensational this icing!!

    Good luck!

    What would happen if the plastic wrap didn’t touch the mixture? I try to avoid using plastic on warm food.

    I know this is an old post of yours but came across it looking for an icing recipe. Can you tell me, should I leave the butterfly in for the last two steps ie. adding vanilla and cooked milk mixture, or should the butterfly be removed? Thanks
