I think because butter icing is quite heavy and water makes it runny and there is kind of no point in it if you no what i mean so i suggest making normal butter icing. I never use measurements its pointless so just add your butter and icing sugar and then!! You add double cream! Not extra thick though!! Or philadelphia (cream cheese) they both work really well and your buttericing goes a lot further!! But make sure you make your butter icing first before you put the cream in because you could over whip ita and as its double cream it will thicken more quickly. It will split if you over whip it and the same with milk add a solash but not to much because it splits to! Hope it helps!!! ;)

I tried this recipe and it was great. The cake was very moist and tasty and everyone loved it. Definitely on my hit list.
