Prep Time
15 min
Ingredients
  1. 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  2. 5-6 cups powdered sugar
  3. 1/2 cup Red Barn Strawberry jam
  4. red food coloring (enough to make it a pretty pink color)
Instructions
  1. Place butter and jam in a mixing bowl or an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment and cream until well incorporated, about 2 minutes.
  2. Add powdered sugar, one cup at a time, until you reach desired consistency. If frosting gets too thick you can add a little milk to thin it out.
  3. Put on your favorite treat
Notes
  1. Pictured above is the frosting on Devil's Food Cake cupcakes.
  2. *If you decide to use a different brand of jam, it must be smooth, like The Red Barn's or it will not turn out correctly.
