Marshmallow Buttercream Frosting

I love homemade frosting.  I could honestly sit down with a big bowl of it and devour the whole thing.  No joke.

I really don’t think I’ve met a (homemade) frosting that I didn’t like, and this Marshmallow Buttercream is definitely no exception to that.  In fact, it’s right there at the top of favorite icings list.

It’s fluffy, light, sweet, rich, – and seriously delicious.  I love to scrape the insides of a vanilla bean into this frosting.  The tiny little specks of vanilla add such a depth of flavor. It’s ah-mazing.

Try it on a chocolate cake, yellow cake, on a spoon – it doesn’t matter, just try it.

Marshmallow Buttercream Frosting
  • 1 cup room temperature butter
  • 1 (7-ounce) jar marshmallow creme
  • 2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 vanilla bean (optional)
  1. Cream the butter until it is light and fluffy. Add the marshmallow creme. Beat for 2 minutes.
  2. Add the confectioners sugar and continue to beat for 2 minutes. Add vanilla extract and vanilla bean. Stir to combine.

    Oh my goodness, I have to try this!

    This sounds heavenly. Great for cake tops. To make a fruit dip try this: instead of the confectioners icing add 2 cups of cream cheese. It is light and tasty. Not only fruit dipping but also great for cake toppings, for spice cake, or carrot cakes.

    I have recently gotten into cake decorating. Is this frosting sturdy enough to use a piping bag and decorating tips?

    • Tabitha

      I was wondering the same thing! Has anyone tried piping this frosting onto cupcakes? Does it hold it’s shape?
