  • 1 c butter
  • 1 two-pound bag powder sugar about 7-8 cups
  • 2 tsp. strawberry extract
  • 4 tbsp. milk
  • dash salt
  • 1 -2 drops pink food coloring


  1. Put room temperature butter, strawberry extract, and salt into mixer. Add in powder sugar one cup at a time, alternating with the milk until you have used it all.

  2. Add in food coloring a drop at a time to determine desired color.
  3. If your frosting is too thick you can certainly add more milk. I found that this is the perfect consistency for me to pipe roses using the 1M or 2D tip.
