Silky Smooth Keto Buttercream Frosting 4 Ways


Step 1Dice butter and add to a stand mixer bowl with the powdered sweetener.

Step 2Use a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a paddle or whisk attachment. Mix on a low speed for 1 to 2 minutes until the butter and sweetener come together.

Step 3Optionally add in flavoring of choice (see recipe tips for options: vanilla, cinnamon, chocolate or salted caramel) and beat on slow for another minute.

Step 4Increase speed and mix until light and fluffy and beat for another minute. The mixture should roughly double in size.

Step 5If the frosting is too thick, you can optionally add 1 to 2 tablespoons of cream and beat for a few more seconds.

Step 6Use immediately to frost cupcakes or decorate cakes. One batch will be enough to decorate 6 to 8 cupcakes, and a double batch will be enough to decorate an 8 to 9 inch (20 to 23 cm) cake.

Step 7This keto buttercream frosting can be stored in the fridge up to a week if making ahead. When you’re ready to use it, simply bring back to room temperature, and re-whip to bring back to a fluffy consistency.
