1cupButterroom temperature, salted or unsalted (add a pinch of salt if using unsalted.)
1tbspHeavy Creammore or less, as needed for spreading consistency
Add sliced strawberries, sugar and raspberry juice to a small saucepan and simmer for 10 minutes until softened.
Blend the berries until smooth. Place covered in refrigerator to cool completely.
Beat butter in mixer until smooth. Add powdered sugar and cover mixer with a light towel to prevent sugar "blowout". Blend together until smooth. Add strawBERRY syrup and vanilla while beating and blend well. Check consistency and add cream until the frosting is spreadable.I usually beat the frosting on medium-high for a few minutes to incorporate some air, but that is optional.
