If you like strawberries, you’ll quickly fall for this easy strawberry buttercream made simply with strawberry jam for a delicious strawberry flavor.
Nothing says summer like a fresh cake with strawberry buttercream. Homemade strawberry buttercream can be tricky to make if you are using fresh strawberries, but this easy strawberry buttercream recipe is about as quick as you can get using a shortcut!
Strawberry jam gives this strawberry frosting it’s pink color and strawberry flavor. I like to use Welch’s Natural Strawberry Spread because of the flavor. Smucker’s Simply Fruit is a great option, too! The frosting has a very light pink color, but if you’d like it a brighter pink, you can simply add a drop of red food coloring. Be careful…it doesn’t take much to deepen the pink color.
