Did you know a basic Swiss meringue buttercream recipe is actually a bowl filled with endless (creamy) possibilities? It’s true! Here’s all you need to know to transform your favorite frosting into… eight favorite frostings!

1. Hazelnut

Let’s be real: everything is better with a heaping helping of Nutella, and buttercream is no exception. This buttercream is delicious with any cake (or just on its own tbh), but you can amp up the Nutella-esque flavors even more by spreading it on chocolate layers.


2. Coffee

Calling all coffee addicts: this one’s for you. The added espresso powder gives you that caffeine fix you crave, especially when slathered onto coffee sponge cake.


3. Strawberry

Bright color, creamy texture and fruit-tastic taste — just try to resist this buttercream! Think about it: how cute will this frosting look when it’s piped into little pink rosettes??


4. Pumpkin Spice

If you feel like we do about pumpkin spice, you’re gonna want to fill up a ton of piping bags. Pumpkin purée, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg combine to make a flavor we’re always craving.


5. Oreo oreo buttercream

Grab a hammer and get baking! We’re only kind of kidding. This buttercream is crazy simple — just crush some Oreo cookies and fold them into your Swiss meringue.


6. Caramel
