Makes a lot of frosting! Not enough vanilla, however. Made a note on my recipe to add more when I make it again.
I was looking for the best recipe for vanilla buttercream frosting for our wedding cupcakes and this was the best. Although it can be on the sweet side, I just omit 1/2 to 1 cup of the powdered sugar and it is perfect. Did I mention my husband also loved the recipe and he is a chef!
This is the only way to fly with Devil's Food. It is ultra sweet, but what do you expect? It is buttercream frosting! It is supposed to be ultra sweet. This is just like you had it growing up.
I tried the lemon variation but still found the frosting to be overly sweet
