White chocolate buttercream is a perfect topping for almost every cupcake and it's so easy to make!

This white chocolate frosting is perfect for a number of cakes including my favorite raspberry lemon cupcakes.

Use this frosting on these white chocolate cupcakes. Enjoy!

      Sounds so wonderful. Can make it with milk chocolate too?

      Yes! You can use the same amount, but you may want to microwave the chocolate because it is softer. Thanks for reading.

      Sounds so delicious! I need to frost a cake with this buttercream, do you think it would work well for that function? Also, do you think I could make it ahead and freeze it like I do many other buttercreams? Thanks!

      Can you tell me how long this would last out of the fridge please? I am thinking about using it to ice my wedding cake :)

      It could last up to five hours outside of the fridge if it isn't too hot. Just make sure to keep it in the shade (if outdoors) or inside a building (preferably with AC). Congratulations on your wedding!!! I hope you have a great one!

      Hello again :) The buttercream turned out really well! I was worried about adding the milk to the melted chocolate for fear it would seize and it DID seize, but the buttercream still turned out great. I'm just wondering if the chocolate seizes when you make it? Is there anything you do differently or is that just to be expected? Thanks!

      It will seize. Keep it in a cool place while stirring and make sure not to put on any cakes or cupcakes too early. Thank you and I'm glad you liked it!

      Hi, what kind of chocolate do you use? Baking/cooking chocolate? Or 'eating' chocolate? Thanks

      Eating chocolate! Melt it down in a double broiler if you have one--or a microwave works just as well.

      Could you add raspberries/raspberry puree to use as a cake filling?
