Vanilla Bean Buttercream Frosting Recipe

Today I shall blog a little something different from the usual food reviews, baking and cooking recipes; Introducing the Vanilla Bean Buttercream Frosting.

Buttercream has always come across to me as a frosting that had similar taste and texture to whipped cream. Oh boy, never did I knew I was deprivig myself of something so good and the magic of frosting... Till now. 

This vanilla butter cream smelled heavenly - like Hagen Dazs - and tasted great. Buttercream is basically creamed butter and icing sugar and usually they would be used to frost cupcakes and cakes. I baked a couple of vanilla cupcakes the other day and decided to try my hands on frosting them for the first time. It was a hit with everyone.

My family, friends and I loved this and I hope you do too! This will complete your vanilla experience when you frost this with vanilla cupcakes.(:
