Oh my goodness i just found a website called www.cupcakeproject
.com it has a recipe on there called the ultimate vanilla cupcakes. Well i have been waiting to make them. Tonight i made the batter and it smelled wonderful, as i baked the cupcakes the whole house smelled like vanilla way yummy! Well they just came out of the oven and of course i had to try one , Yep they have the right name they melted in my mouth and i can still taste the vanilla i could for sure eat alot of these. Now to let them cool and put my famous buttercream frosting on them.
Thanks for sharing! Would you be willing to share your buttercream recipe?
Is the website that gave working for you guys? It works for me but i have it bookmarked in my nook
ok lets see if i can give you my recipe for my frosting. first of all you MUST use high ratio shortening thats the biggest secret of all ! only place that i have been able to find high ratio shortening is at a special cake store that i shop at, criso and the such isnt good enough. you can also order the shortening online but thats in large amounts that i dont use enough of yet but if you can only get it from the internet than so be it.
2 cups high ratio shortening
2 cups c and h powered sugar ( dont use the cheap store brand it makes your frosting grainy)
2 tablespoons of meringue power
2 teaspoons wilton butter flavoring
3 teaspoons wilton vanilla exact
10 to 12 teaspoons heavy whipping cream
a dash of salt
start with the shortening in your mixer bowl add butter flavoring , vanilla and the heavy cream all together mix on low for about a minute add salt and meringue power whip for about 30 seconds slowly add your powered sugar alittle at a time until its all in there. now this will make a very stiff frosting i usually want it a bit thinner so i add the heavy cream a teaspoon at a time as the mixer is running to make it to the point where its spreadable or good for frosting cakes or cupcakes. when ive got it how i like it i do whip it for a couple of minutes to make it light and fluffy . use at once or refrigerate but after you put it in the frig it gets cold and alittle stiff, just put it back into your mixer and whip it for a minute it gets light and fluffy again
Tyler4250 please let me know what you think of the frosting once you make it
Thanks kazita! I don't have hr shortening around here but I'll give it a try with all butter. Sounds yummy
