Baked some raspberries poppy seed cupcakes last two days, with raspberries cream cheese filling and raspberries buttercream frosting. Was totally amazed by the natural colour produced by raspberries when mixed with butter for the buttercream frosting. It gave a nice pinkish colour, without adding artificial colouring, that is what we are looking for.
Raspberries buttercream frosting:
1 stick of unsalted butter
1 cup of powdered sugar
3 teaspoons of raspberries puree
a pinch of salt
(1) Beat butter in an electric mixer for a minute.
(2) Add salt.
(3) Add sugar.
(4) Add in raspberries puree and mixed till desired consistency is reached. The frsoting should be nice and thick.
