Frosting makes everything better!

The following are some helpful hints for creating the finest keto buttercream frosting:
- To frost a delicious keto cake or cupcakes, use this recipe suggestion. It’s ideal for birthdays and other special occasions, allowing you to indulge in cake guilt-free!
- Use softened butter rather than molten butter. The easiest method to accomplish this is to take the butter out of the refrigerator and let it to soften before beginning this dish. If you’re in a hurry, warm up a glass cup in the microwave and put it upside down over the cold butter for a minute or two – that’ll work too!
- If desired, add a few drops of food coloring for a splash of color. Depending on the kind of cake you’re making, you may also leave out the vanilla and flavor the frosting with different extracts.
- Start with 3/4 cup powdered erythritol and gradually increase to 1 cup, depending on desired flavor and texture. If you add more, it will clearly have a sweeter flavor and a stiffer texture, so sample it as you’re preparing it.

Check out what Jenna, one of my teammates, had to say about the frosting:
“I love the taste and consistency of this! With my new pastry bag, it was a breeze to use! And my kid was spoon-feeding it to herself!
I experimented with 34 cup of Swerve and discovered that this is the magic number for me! It’s sweet in the way you’d expect a frosting to be, but it still retains the butter’s rich, creamy flavor! I know I’ve tried it with the full 1 cup and it’s delicious too, but it’s definitely on the sweet side.”
