Nothing beats a bakery cake but making it at home! It is so simple to have that amazing Bakery buttercream frosting with this Strawberry Buttercream recipe. You will never go to the bakery again! This strawberry frosting recipe is made with fresh strawberries, so you will have one amazing strawberry flavor!
I used the same type of frosting as my bakery style the vanilla buttercream. So if you’re looking for a good decorating buttercream than this is it. It’s stiff enough to hold out piped designs but fluffy enough to go on smoothly on tier cakes.
The key perfect buttercream is making sure your water is very hot and that you’re letting it makes in the mixer long enough. You may use a handheld mixer to make this but I prefer my stand mixer. That way I do not have to stand there for ten minutes mixing it up. I will say I have broken three handheld mixers because they are just not strong enough to hold up to my baking so it is well worth the investment to get a KitchenAid Mixer!

How to Make Strawberry Buttercream Frosting
This homemade Strawberry Buttercream tastes just like the strawberry buttercream you get on a cake you buy from a bakery. Easy homemade strawberry buttercream is the perfect frosting for cakes and cupcakes.
- Remove any stems from your strawberries and place them into a blender or food processor. Pulse them until all of the strawberry pieces have been pureed.
- Place your butter and shortening together in the bowl of your mixer. Mix them together on medium speed until they are nice and creamy.
- Turn the mixer down to the lowest setting and slowly incorporate the powdered sugar into the shortening mixture. Once you have added all the sugar to the mix pour in the strawberry puree, and the vanilla.
- Turn the mixer up to medium-high speed and continue mixing for 10 minutes until light and fluffy.
The strawberry buttercream can be stored at room temperature for up to three days out on the counter or in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. When you bring it out of the refrigerator let it sit at room temperature for two hours. Then re-whip it for ten minutes to bring it back to life.
