Hi Margaret Magee

To prevent gritty buttercream, sift the powdered sugar well and have the butter soft so it combines easily with the sugar. If it still feels gritty, add a couple of teaspoons of hot water to help melt the sugar. Mix well with the paddle attachment of the stand mixer.

I’m not a buttercream person but sometimes it has to be made. In this case, I usually add 100 grams of melted white chocolate to make it smoother. Hope this works for you.
