Rainbow Buttercream Icing 

Occasionally my friends would tag me in a blog post or a baking demonstration video and suggest that I try to make it, this time my friend tagged me in a rainbow buttercream icing post on Facebook and I was determined to give it a go.

For the icing, I ended up using my Americolor food colours orange, deep pink, blue and green. I put the colours in random  order but it ended up being thicker lines that the one demonstrated in the video.

The technique in the video was pretty easy to follow and I was very pleased with the end result. 

The colours looked so beautiful when piped together and using the Wilton 1M piping tip gave the icing a lovely rainbow rosette    design. 


I cannot wait to do this again! Yay!

My tools that I used:

Daiso piping bags, Glad Wrap, Americolor food colouring and Wilton 1M piping tip.

Icing recipe:

Mix together-

130 grams of softened butter

2 cups of sifted icing sugar

1 tablespoon of milk (add more if consistency isn’t right)
