In order to get a mint flavored buttercream would I just substitute mint extract for the vanilla in my buttercream recipe? If not, does someone have a recipe for mint buttercream that DOES crust? Thank you in advance.

Use less mint than you would vanilla though, it's much stronger.

Do it every Christmas...color it red or green and ice chocolate cake. Ditto the light hand with the flavoring....
