This pistachio buttercream frosting is a delicious, easy to make icing recipe that is perfect for cakes, brownies or pistachio macarons. Plus it takes less than 10 minutes to make!





  • If you find the buttercream is not quite smooth enough, add in a small dash of extra cream to loosen up the buttercream.
  • Let the butter come to room temperature (which will take about an hour), before beginning this recipe.
