  • 300g icing sugar , sifted
  • 100g unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 40g cocoa powder
  • 40ml whole milk


    1. Beat the icing sugar , butter and cocoa power together in a free standing electric mixer with a paddle attachment (or use a hald held electric whisk)on medium-slow speed until the mixture comes together and is well mixed .
    2. Turn the mixerdown to slow speed. Add the milk to the butter mixture a couple of teaspoons at a time . Once all the milk has been incorporated , turn the mixer up to high speed. Continue beating until the frosting is light and fluffy , about 5 minutes . The longer the frosting is beaten, the fluffier and the lighter it becomes.
