Buttercream is a type of icing used inside cakes, as a cake coating, and as decoration. Buttercream is made by creaming butter with icing sugar, although other fats can be used, such as margarine. Colourings and flavourings are often added to a Buttercream Recipe, such as cocoa powder or vanilla extract.
