I just found this from my magnolia bakery recipe book, I haven't tried it though
if you try it, make sure you let me know how you go and send me a photo!!
it says
The icing tastes better if made the day before the cake because the brown sugar gives the icing a slightly grainy texture that improves if allowed to set over night

2 cups (4 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
5cups sifted confect. sugar
1 and half cups firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 c milk
2 tbs dark corn syrup (dont think we have this in australia, damn)
2 tsp vanilla extract

large bown, on medium speed of electric mixer, ceam butter til smooth
add sugar and beat on low for 2 mins
Add milk, syrup and vanilla, beat til smooth & creamy- 3-5 mins
Use immediately or store covered at room temp for up to 2 days.

sounds yummy.. GOOD LUCK!!

I did a real vanilla bean buttercream once- then carmelized sugar to a hard stage and broke it into bits to mix in... it was divine.

I didn't go with the caramel, but the Whole Egg buttercream that is in the recipes here. It tastes like custard. Very creamy and good.

I bet that matched the flavor of the cake to a T
