Strawberry Frosting Recipe

Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes

The search for the best Strawberry Frosting recipe is over! This homemade buttercream is made with freeze dried strawberries for natural berry flavor. Pipe onto cupcakes, roll into cake balls, spread over a cake, or just eat with a spoon. Strawberry heaven!


  • 1 oz freeze dried strawberries
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


    1. In a food processor, pulse freeze dried strawberries until fine crumbs. Set aside.
    2. In a large mixing bowl with whisk attachment, beat butter for 2-3 minutes until pale in color (scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed).
    3. Add in powdered sugar, milk, vanilla, and strawberry crumbs.
    4. Beat an additional 2-3 minutes until well blended, and fluffy. Add in more milk if needed to achieve the consistency you want.


  • Enough frosting to cover a 2-layer cake or 24 cupcakes.
  • Beat butter first. Before adding the powdered sugar, beat the butter on its own until pale and fluffy. This will help the frosting get fluffier and creamier.
  • Add milk a little at a time. This way you can adjust the frosting to your desired consistency. I like mine spreadable but still nice and thick!
  • Storing. If not using right away, store this strawberry frosting in an airtight container in the fridge.
