BluRuby Yummy Recipe Choice for the Month

Thought you might want to try this recipe for REALLY AWESOME buttercream frosting! This will work so well with your printed frosting sheet art so plan your next cupcake, cookie or cake creation with this great combo - Whipped Vanilla Buttercream Frosting and BluRuby Edible Art (


(perfect frosting for your choice edible art)

Whipped Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

5 tbsp all purpose flour
1 cup milk (you can use low fat if you prefer)
1 cup sugar (better if you use baker's sugar)
8 oz unsalted butter, softened (equiv. to 2 sticks of butter)
1 tsp vanilla extract

1. Using a whisk, dissolve the flour with milk in a sauce pan over low to medium heat. Stir until a thick roux forms (like paste). Remove from heat, cover with plastic wrap (this is so no film forms on the surface of the roux) set aside and allow to cool. (You will have to give this a few minutes of cooling time before proceeding to the next step. Tip: Make your roux while waiting for your butter to soften so you save time)

2. In a separate bowl, beat the softened butter, sugar, and vanilla extract until well blended. Add the cooled flour paste and whip for about 8 - 10 minutes until sugar is dissolved. Halfway through whipping, stop and scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl to make sure everything is incorporated. Then continue to whip until you have this wonderfully light, whipped frosting.

3. If you need to color your frosting, you can add your choice of food coloring after you are done whipping. At slow speed of your mixer, add your color and mix until you arrive at your desired color.

OR just leave your frosting white and decorate with BLURUBY EDIBLE ART for an even more fabulous finish!

This recipe is enough to cover 24 regular size cupcakes, 48 mini cupcakes, 8" round double layer cake, or a single layer quarter sheet cake

Have fun!
