Looking for the perfect Butterbeer Cream Frosting for that cake or cupcakes?! This simple recipe is just magical!
Harry Potter fans know that the signature flavor of all things Harry Potter is BUTTERBEER! Butterbeer is a carmamelly, butterscotchy flavor as described in the books. At the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando is reminds me of a richer Cream Soda. That is the flavor this Butterbeer Cream Frosting is styled after.
In the parks the Frozen and Cold Butterbeer is topped with a marshmallow flavored whipped topping that is the perfect compliment to the drink itself. That is why the secret ingredient in this frosting is Marshmallow Cream! Not only does it make one amazing light frosting, but it is super simple to whip together.
Only 5 Ingredients
A serious shocker is that this recipe only has 5 ingredients and 2 of them are flavor extracts. This is one of the most simple frostings you will ever make. You will need
- 1 Jar Marshmallow Fluff
- 1/2 cup butter or butter substitute
- A cup of powdered sugar
- 1 tsp Imitation Caramel Extract
- 1 tsp Root Beer Extract
I love this recipe because as long as you use a dairy free butter substitute this recipe is totally dairy free and gluten free!
