Ingredients

  • 1 (16 ounce) package confectioners' sugar

  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • 6 strawberries, pureed, or more to taste

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Beat confectioners' sugar, butter, strawberry puree, and vanilla extract together in the bowl of a stand mixer or using a hand-held mixer, gradually increasing speed to reach high, until smooth.

Cook's Notes:

Softening the butter first generally makes the mixing process more simple.

If you desire a thicker icing add less puree or more sugar. One trick I tried was using a little xanthan gum, about a teaspoon.
