Soften the butter a little ( donít let it melt )
Put the butter and caster sugar in a bowl and beat until it is white and fluffy.
While it is beating add the Brandy -a tablespoon at a time.
Make sure the last spoonful is amalgamated before adding another.
Let this set in the fridge - it will keep there for weeks- but leave it out at room temperature for several hours before using.
