I have done the same thing and the simplest solution is to make some more SMBC and add the two batches together before adding vanilla to the second batch. Taste it after they have been combined and then only add an additional 1/4 tsp at a time until it tastes the way you would like. SMBC freezes well, so if doing it this way leaves you with too much frosting you can freeze the remainder for another project later on. One side note, I have read threads that say vanilla can go bad--how old is the vanilla? I have never had that happen myself, but you never know. Hope that helps.
