French Vanilla Buttercream
IntroductionA buttercream frosting that tastes a bit like homemade vanilla ice cream (or so my 6 year old sister tells me!) A buttercream frosting that tastes a bit like homemade vanilla ice cream (or so my 6 year old sister tells me!)
- Butter, salted, 1 cup (yes, salted- the tastes work for the sweet cakes!)
- Powdered sugar, 1 pound or 4 cups.
- Vanilla extract, 2 teaspoons
- Coffeemate Creamer, French Vanilla, 3 tablespoons
The frosting is just salty! It might not taste perfect in the mixer, but on white cake or a rich cake, the salt cuts the sweet, and you don't need too much frosting. On a mini cupcake (64 per batter instead of 24 regular cupcakes), I put only 1/10 of a serving (4-5 grams) of frosting on and to me, that is perfect!
Serving Size: Makes enough to cover cake from one mix pretty easily, especially in slow-mo. Each serving is 1/24 of the recipe- or about 45 grams per serving.
Number of Servings: 24
