This weekend I baked a vanilla buttercream cake, and topped it with the Well Dressed Cake SMBC. I cut open vanilla beans, and put the vanilla insides in both the cake batter and the frosting. Both were simply fabulous, and the frosting was un.be.liev.able!!! Not a single person at the party didn't RAVE about the cake, and I think it was the best vanilla/white cake I ever tasted. And while it wouldn't be appropriate for all cakes, those little flakes of vanilla looked pretty cool, AND offered superb taste.
This frosting is my favorite vanilla. It's easy to make, and wins over people who don't normally like frosting because of it's sweetness. I only got a tiny piece, and wish I had a piece right now!
Where is this recipe??
It is the best frosting...that's all I use. The strawberry smbc is to die for!! Puree strawberries and add some strawberry syrup...yummy!! Also, add melted mint choco chips for a mint smbc...wow!!
Can you tell I love it?!?
Which cake recipe did you use?
It's called 'white on white'. Just google it. I forget where I got the recipe from, but I've seen others on this site refer to it as well. it is a WONDERFUL white cake.
AI was suggesting this recipe in a Facebook group recently and figured I'd give this thread a bump while I was at it, in case anyone was looking to try SMBC for the first time, or wanted to try a different recipe. It's what I've used for years now, with a couple of tweaks. This is the one to try if the others have been too buttery for you.
