The Best Vanilla Buttercream EVER!
You will never need another Vanilla Buttercream recipe! This is so delicious, just look at those wonderful vanilla bean flecks! I won't be telling my trainer about this one - ha ha!
I made these for a Birthday in the office and they were a hit!!! The cupcake was the same recipe as they vanilla cupcakes I made for St. Patrick's Day, they have become my favorite go to cupcake! They are easy to make and the results are fabulous. I spruced them up by adding food coloring in four different colors. I then layered the batter into the cupcake liner and swirled with a toothpick to create a groovy finish! This would be a lot easier to make in regular sized cupcakes but I really enjoyed this look.
Now for the new recipe that had everyone asking for more - Vanilla Bean Buttercream! I even converted a non-frosting lover! Try this today - make something that needs this frosting!
