How To Make: Rainbow Unicorn Butter Icing

June 15, 2017

 

 A while back now, I organised a bake sale at work for Red Nose Day. I made the theme 'colour' instead of simply 'red' to encourage everyone to get involved! And I think it worked...Well I got super excited about it anyway!

 

 

There were so many fabulous cakes and bakes, completely full of wonderful colours (and E numbers!).

 

I decided to make cupcakes, topped with rainbow icing. I'd seen a picture when flicking through Instagram, and seen multi-coloured icing. And I can't believe I'd never thought about doing this until then! What a wonderful idea - 

And it was pretty simple. 

Ingredients 

500g Icing Sugar 

160g Butter (at room temp)

A splash of whole milk 

A few drops of vanilla essence

As many colours as you have in the cupboard!

 

 

Method

1. Make your butter icing. To see how to make vanilla butter cream, take a look at the recipe here.

2. Separate your butter icing into 5/6 bowls. (This is dependant on how many colours you have or want to use). 

3. Mix the icing with the colours - each colour for a separate bowl. 

4. Take a spoon of each icing mix, and line your piping bag with it. This will look like a blobbed mess, but trust me you're doing it right!

5. Pipe the icing onto your cake or cupcakes.

 

Your icing should come out rainbow-like and look amazing! I like to top mine with sprinkles, or even glitter would be better, to finish it off.
