To start, preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Grab a large bowl and add some softened butter. Use a mixer at medium speed to beat the butter until it becomes creamy and smooth.

TIPS: If your butter is too hard, a few seconds in the microwave can soften it up and make it easier to whip.

TIPS: Instead of using butter, you can opt for good quality margarine. It works just as well!
