Rosemary Frosting

Rosemary frosting sounds a little unusual right? That's what I thought until I tried it. I'm happy to say it's wonderful.

If you like the scent of this herb then you will LOVE this recipe. This makes a lovely and unique wedding cake filling or frosting.

The infusion for this recipe is simple. Add 5 sprigs of Rosemary to 1/2 pound of unsalted butter. Let it sit for three hours, remove the sprigs and add the butter to your favorite frosting recipe.

The Recipe


  • Fresh Rosemary from the garden, purchased at a grocery store or nearby farm 
  • 1/2 pound of room temperature unsalted butter (for the infusion)
  • One recipe of Italian meringue buttercream ( as in the video) or your favorite buttercream recipe

These beautiful cupcakes can be created with any buttercream recipe. I used the Italian meringue buttercream mixed with leftover Rosemary frosting. The party goers LOVED the herbal earthy flavor of the Rosemary infused cactus plants.

Use this herbal icing on all types of cakes including cupcakes. An orange butter cake is especially suited to this. It even tastes fantastic with chocolate.
