Vanilla is the New Sexy
I know I’ve blogged about Vanilla cupcakes here and the intoxicating effects of Vanilla buttercream. And today I had to revisit this amazing combination.
Perhaps it’s the way the Test Kitchen smells when vanilla cupcakes are in the oven…or maybe it’s the simplicity of its vanailla-ness. But I have become a #1 fan of this particular cupcake.
The Classic Vanilla Cake recipe yielded 24 cupcakes (filling the cupcake liners ⅔ to ¾ full).
I used 75% of one batch of Vanilla Buttercream to cover this particular dozen – the icing is stacked quite tall.
Since I had another dozen to go, I combined the Vanilla Buttercream with the remaining Nutella Buttercream from Friday and had plenty to cover each cupcake.
|I really dig the smoothness of this frosting…it looks so velvety.
