What is a buttercream board?

A buttercream board is just like a butter board, but it's a sweet version made with buttercream frosting! You can make any kind of buttercream board you like using any flavor of buttercream frosting. After you make the frosting, you spread it onto a serving board or cheese board. This part is really fun! Next you can add toppings like sprinkles, chocolate chips, nuts, caramel sauce, or even a drizzle of chocolate ganache sauce on top if you want. You can also leave it plain. You should add dipping items onto the board. I'm using cookies here, but other great options would be animal crackers, graham crackers, pretzels or anything else you want to dip in frosting!

FAQ's

What is the butter board trend?

The butter board trend is basically taking soft butter, spreading it onto a cutting board and topping it with toppings that sound good such as fresh herbs, spices, or veggies. You then dip bread, breadsticks, or crackers in it. It’s served like a charcuterie board and is an amazing idea for a party!

Who started the butter board trend?

The butter board trend started on TikTok (by Justin Doiron) and it was originally created by Joshua McFadden who apparently has been making these babies for over ten years! How they are just trending now, is beyond me!

Can you make a sweet butter board?

Yes, you can make a sweet butter board if you want! That is what I’ve done here, and I’ve replaced the butter with buttercream frosting! You can use any kind of buttercream frosting you like, but stick to American buttercream. Other types of buttercream need to be refrigerated because they use egg whites. But, American buttercream can sit out for longer periods of time. You can top your buttercream with any kind of sweet things such as rainbow sprinkles, chocolate chips, caramel sauce, chocolate ganache, nuts and more!
