A speculoos buttercream recipe using speculoos spread.
Ok so maybe you’ve restrained yourself from eating speculoos spread straight out of the jar with a spoon. I defy you however to not sweep a finger around the bowl of this speculoos buttercream after (or before) you use it to decorate my speculoos cupcakes published alongside this post.
Not just for cupcakes, this speculoos buttercream would be ideal for sandwiching together macarons, layering a sponge cake together or even covering the outside of one.
It may be over egging the pudding somewhat to decorate a speculoos cake with real pieces of speculoos biscuit on top of speculoos icing but I make no apologies for it.
Have you tried speculoos spread yet? (They’ve started selling it – called Lotus spread – in Waitrose recently although I’m sure other stores will follow.)
Clarification: I bought my speculoos spread on holiday in France. Neither Waitrose nor Lotus know I’m writing this post.
