Almond buttercream frosting introduction

It is very easy to work with this frosting, so that everyone will think that you have started confectionery professionally? And when you see how well you are doing, maybe it will be true 🙂

This fine, smooth almond cream glaze is ready in less than 10 minutes. All you need are a few good, quality ingredients. Perfectly timed butter, finely sifted powdered sugar, pure almond extract, almond milk and that’s it.

To make butter perfect for preparing buttercream leave it overnight at room temperature. Not in a warm place, because then you will get too soft butter, and therefore the rare consistency of frosting in the preparation itself. And if that happens, and the butter is too soft, leave it in the fridge for 3 minutes and continue working with it.

Tips and tricks to make the Almond buttercream frosting

If you forgot to take the butter out of the fridge the night before, a microwave or oven will help. Put the butter in a glass bowl and turn on the microwave for 1-2 minutes, or heat the oven to 50 degrees and put the butter in a glass bowl for 5-7 minutes. You have butter ready when your finger is finely painted on the inside.

Once you have combined all the ingredients and got almond buttercream frosting, you can work with it right away, and you can also leave it in the fridge and have it ready to use when you need it. Frosting can be up to 3 days at room temperature in a 14-day refrigerator or even 14 days in a freezer. It is important that you store your cream well, that it is in a glass container, which you have covered with plastic wrap.

When you remove the almond buttercream frosting from the refrigerator, let it stand for two hours at room temperature. Then whisk it again in the bowl of a stand mixer for ten minutes to bring it back to become fine and smooth. This Almond Frosting is an Almond buttercream frosting that tastes just like the frosting you get from a bakery.
