Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
Of every recipe that I have ever developed, vanilla frosting has absolutely been the biggest challenge of all. However, I am very pleased with the outcome of this one. It is very versatile and works for everything from a cake frosting to the filling for whoopie pies to a decadent topping for cinnamon rolls.
