There’s just something about white chocolate buttercream frosting that is perfect when paired with a rich dark or milk chocolate cake or cupcake I think. But seriously, you can spread a thin layer on a cookie or a graham cracker and it still makes for a mighty delicious sweet treat! 

The other day I made cupcakes for my youngest nephew Murphy who had an injury and needed a little cheering up. I knew how much he loved my chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream so I decided to make those as cupcakes for him. I made a few additional ones for my house since we were having guests the next night for supper and decided to top ours with my white chocolate buttercream along with a drizzle of my raspberry sauce and a few fresh raspberries to dress them up a bit.

Let me just go ahead and profess my undying love for the combination of raspberries and chocolate, but raspberries with raspberry sauce, white chocolate and chocolate chocolate? That, my friends, is absolute heaven!

Here’s my White Chocolate Buttercream Frosting recipe. I hope you absolutely love it!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chip morsels
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 5 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Add the white chocolate chips and 1/3 cup of milk to a glass, microwave safe bowl. Heat in the microwave at 50% in 30 second intervals, stirring each time, until the the white chocolate is smooth. Allow to cool.
  • Cream butter until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Stir in melted and cooled white chocolate and then gradually add in confectioner's sugar, about 1 cup at a time. Then add in milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, followed by vanilla. Beat on high for about 1 to 3 minutes until the buttercream frosting is smooth, fluffy and will hold a peak.

Notes

If you want to make the buttercream frosting ahead, place it into an airtight container and refrigerate. When ready to use, let the frosting come to room temperature, then beat it again with the mixer until fluffy.

  1. Hi! I’m having a dinosaur theme party for my son and I’m looking for a green frosting for the cake. Do you think I can add spirulina to this frosting whitout altering the taste too much?
    Thanks!

    1. Karen,
      I’m sorry but I have never used spirulina in my frosting so I’m not sure. Maybe someone else has used it and can give you an answer.

    2. Just use food safe coloring, there’s several different colors and you can mix to obtain the desired color. I wouldn’t use spirulina, it would alter the taste.

  2. just made this and it is wonderful… not too sweet. i’m a first timer and the instructions were perfect. thank you for sharing!
