Buttercream Frosting

So, yesterday was the Bean’s birthday party. We held it at a local pizzeria – the party consisted of feeding everyone pizza, giving the kids (average age of 3) bop-balloons and noisemakers and handing out cupcakes. For all that there was zero planned activities for the little ones, they had a blast shoving their faces, volleying their balloons and blowing on their noisemakers.
My son helped me make the cupcakes for his party. He had a Thomas the Train themed party (go figure) so we used Thomas cupcake liners and toppers for the cupcakes. We baked both ‘yellow’ and chocolate cupcakes – IMO they were just “aright”. But we made a fantastic frosting that really set them off. I found this Buttercream recipe online. I doubled the original recipe and only added half the amount of vanilla. In lieu of milk I used hazelnut coffee creamer. The frosting was sugary and faintly salty all at once and held it’s shape wonderfully. I don’t often find a need to make frosting but would certainly make this buttercream again!
