Secret to brilliant buttercream!

You'd think I'd know this already, but, I have finally managd to create the perfect buttercream! Akin to those you can buy in lovely cupcakes bakeries (which I've aspired to for ages!)... the secret is... WHIPPING. Lots and lots of whipping - with either a hand mixer or a really good electric mixer. At least a good five minutes if not much more. This creates a great fluffy, smooth and light buttercream.
I'd usually just mix for a couple of minutes until just mixed but doing it this way instead is way better! Pluss adding a little whole milk helps too.
