  1. Firstly, cream together the butter and sugar until it comes together using a whisk or hand mixer. Small clumps might be observed.
  2. Then, mix in the milk and whisk until a single consistency is achieved.

  3. Then, mix in the dissolved matcha and heavy whipping cream and whisk until it comes together.
  4. Set aside for 15 – 20 minutes to set before using.
