I heard several references to kool-aid buttercream, but havent been able to get anyone to share the recipe icon_cry.gif

I would imagine besides the color, the taste would be easy to adjust once you know the basic recipe?

Can anyone help me with this please?

Thanks so much

Hi there! I have never made it before, but it sounds yummy! Here is a recipe I found onlineicon_wink.gif Hope it helps!

* ½ cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened

* 4 ½ - 5 cups powdered sugar

* ¼ cup milk

* .13 oz. packet KOOL-AID Sugar-Sweetened Soft Drink Mix, in flavor of your choice

* 1 tsp. vanilla extract

1. Cream butter in the bowl of a mixer.
2. Add sugar and milk gradually, beating well after each addition.
3. Add vanilla extract, and mix until its fully incorporated.
4. Add Kool-Aid by the ¼ teaspoon and mix thoroughly, until flavoring is to your satisfaction (or just dump the entire packet in if you like super-sweet high intensity flavor).
5. Mix on low speed and make sure its well blended.
6. Use on cooled cupcakes.
7. Enjoy!
