Course Dessert
Servings 4


  • Oven
  • Baking Tray
  • Hand held blender
  • Spatula


  • 300 gm Icing Sugar
  • 250 gm Unsalted melted butter
  • 250 gm Cream Cheese


  • Melt the softened unslated butter in the microwave for 30 sec
  • Sieve the icing sugar into a mixing bowl
  • Pourthe butter over it and mix well
  • Add the cream cheese
  • Using a toothpaste add 2 drops of black food colouring and with another toothpick, add 1 drop of ivory food colouring - they mix to give a spooky and slimy grey colour to the frosting
  • Blend into a smooth paste with a hand blender for almost 4 minutes or until the mixture is smooth and the sugar granules are totally mixed into the butter and cream cheese
  • To decorate the cake I only used a small amount and after my nephews had a go at decorating I slathered on the remaining slime all over the cake slab - made for a very happy 2 year old ;)
  • Of you would rather not use up the whole buttercream, simply change the colour to anything you fancy and freeze - keeps for 3 weeks in an airtight box in the freezer
  • To use thaw overnight in the refrigerator and blend for minutes to get the same texture again
  • Once thawed use it all up, do not refreeze
