  1. Hy ms jemma , i wanna ask. When i making dis buttercream. Why the taste is so sweet ya? I wanna make that not so sweet. Can u teach us? 😣

  2. 1) can I refrigerate it for later ? I mean – freeze it 🙂 2) I have vanilla paste – can I use the same amount ? or less ….

  3. Soooooooooooo pretty. I worked with frosting only once so far and was really impressed how easy it is. Can't wait to decorate more cupakes. :)

  4. if I want to make it firm to pipe flowers or buttercream trasnfers..should I add milk?and I fi I want it spreadable to frost a cake add more milk than th eone Jemma says?

  5. Great and simple recipe, but too much sugar. All the other recipes I saw had significantly less sugar. Would it affect the final consistency if I put less sugar?

  6. Hi! I am wanting to frost 24 or so cupcakes with a generous amount of frosting on each one so can anyone recommend how many times over I repeat the recipe? Cheers

  7. Hi Jemma, I used hand mixer. My butter cream curdled didn't rise at all after adding the second batch of icing sugar.. What should I do??
