Year-Round Giving: Vanilla Bean Buttercream Frosting

December 10, 2013

Vanilla Bean Buttercream Frosting

Vanilla Bean Buttercream cupcakes

My talented friend, Elise made some pumpkin cupcakes a few weeks ago with this vanilla bean buttercream frosting and it was so delicious that I said, “We have to blog this.” If you are a blogger and have said those words then you know it is good. It is so good I wanted to top everything with it like coffee, pancakes, or just pipe the stuff directly into my mouth.

Elise is at it again this week and snapped some great pictures of the cupcakes she made. This frosting will taste wonderful on any cupcake. I am going to make this frosting to top chocolate cupcakes for New Year’s Eve.

Elise gives us a couple of examples of how versatile this frosting can be by adding other other flavors to the recipe below.
Add ½ tsp peppermint extract for Candy Cane Frosting
Add 1 tbsp fresh nutmeg for eggnog frosting

This frosting is super easy to make. One ingredient you may not be able to find in your local grocery store is Nielsen Massey Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Paste 4 oz You can get on Amazon or be on the look out in the Home sections of Ross, TJ Maxx or Home Goods. If you find it anywhere else please comment below where you found it for other readers. Not only does the Vanilla Bean Paste give the frosting amazing flavor but you can see the specks of the vanilla bean laced through the frosting.

Give these cupcakes a real flavor wow factor and use fresh nutmeg.
