Almond Brandy Butter Icing

Add a touch of Christmas to your cake with Almond Brandy Butter Icing.


  • 125g soft unsalted butter
  • 500g icing sugar
  • 80g ground blanched almonds
  • 2-3 tablespoons of brandy


Cream together butter, icing sugar, blanched almonds and brandy. Whip until very light and fluffy. Cover the top of your Phillippa’s Christmas Cake, patting the icing with a wide knife to give a rough textured finish.

Any left over can be used to sandwich Phillippa’s Shortbread.
