Raspberry Mango Buttercream

Today is National Milk Chocolate day…however, this weekend I made some killer cupcakes for a friend’s daughter’s wedding reception and I really need to share the recipe for this icing. The cake itself was a quick box cake, don’t judge me it was a really busy weekend, in this case lemon, though I think this icing would go well with yellow cake, lemon cake, white cake, angel foodcake…anything that can take a bright punch of mango. It’s an easy easy icing that starts with 6 ounces of raspberry mango freezer jam. I used the jam I made with Jam in a Jiffy a few weeks ago and I love the hold and the brightness it gives to the whole thing. If you choose a non jam in a jiffy jam you’ll want to add extra Ultra Gel to the recipe to guarantee stability.

So without further ado…

Raspberry Mango Buttercream Icing

6 ounces raspberry mango freezer jam

1/3 cup softened butter

1/2 tsp kosher salt

1 tsp vanilla

4 cups powdered sugar

1 Tbl Ultra Gel (2-3 if using a non JinaJ jam)

milk as needed to achieve desired consistency

Combine jam, butter and salt and whip in a stand mixer or with a hand mixer until smooth. Add vanilla and Ultra Gel. Mix in powdered sugar 1/2 cup at a time, alternating with milk if needed to achieve a spreadable consistency. Save any unused portion in the refrigerator. Yum!
