White Chocolate Buttercream

Whipped White Chocolate Buttercream Frosting – The only frosting you will ever need!

This buttercream is a decadent version of the beloved buttercream. I use this on lots of cupcakes and cakes. If you only want to learn one frosting to go with most everything, this is it!

  • 1 C. unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 ½ C. powdered sugar (or more, depending on desired consistency)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 6 oz. good quality white chocolate, chopped (NOT white chocolate chips or candy melts!)
  • ¼ C. heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ tsp. vanilla extract
  1. Put the chopped white chocolate into a small pan. Melt the chocolate with 1/2 stick of butter. You can also heat the chocolate in 30 second increments in the microwave set to 60% power. Stir after each increment, and continue to heat 30 seconds at a time, until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Set aside and allow to completely cool.
  2. Once white chocolate has cooled, sift the salt and powdered sugar over the butter, in a large bowl. Cream the butter and sugar mixture together until light and fluffy, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed.
  3. Measure the whipping cream into a cup, and stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. With the mixer running on low speed, gradually pour the cream mixture the bowl.
  5. Once the cream mixture has been incorporated into the frosting, fold on the melted (but cooled) white chocolate until incorporated.
  6. Increase the mixer speed to medium-high, and beat frosting for an additional 3 minutes.
  7. Makes about 2 ½ cups of frosting.
