Strawberry Frosting Recipe

To make strawberry frosting at home, you only need a few simple things. For summer, this frosting is great on cakes, cupcakes, and other baked goods. 

– 1 (1-ounce) bag freeze-dried strawberries (28 grams) – 1 cup unsalted butter softened (2 sticks; 230 grams) – 3 cups powdered sugar (360 grams) – 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream or milk (45 ml) – 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract – ⅛ teaspoon salt



Blend or process the freeze-dried strawberries until they are a fine powder. Add the strawberries to a blender or food processor. 


Beat the butter on medium speed in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment or a large bowl with a handheld mixer until smooth.


By adding one cup at a time and mixing well after each addition, add the powdered sugar on low speed.


Add strawberry powder, heavy whipping cream, vanilla extract, and salt and beat on low-medium speed until incorporated, scraping bowl sides as needed.
