  1. Mix together the softened butter*, vanilla extract, butter extract, caramel extract, butterscotch topping, heavy whipping cream**, and cream soda.

  2. Add in the powdered sugar, and mix everything together for 2 to 3 minutes, mixing well.

  3. If your frosting seems a little thin, you can add in a little extra powdered sugar until you reach the desired consistency.

  4. You’ll end up with a very smooth, creamy, butterbeer buttercream frosting that’s perfect for cake decorating, piping onto cupcakes, and more. It tastes divine!

Recipe Notes

*Make sure you soften the butter first. Try to get it out ahead of time and let it soften naturally. Don’t be like me and use the microwave to soften it, therefore melting it.

**You can use milk instead of heavy whipping cream, but you may end up with a softer icing, especially at room temperature.
