Flashback Friday – Marshmallow Buttercream Frosting

Marshmallow Buttercream

 I’ve been kind of forgetful on Flashback Friday for the past 2 weeks, but I’m making up for it with today’s re-post of this fantabulous Marshmallow Buttercream.  It’s decadence at it’s best – so fluffy, creamy, & full of everything the perfect icing should be.  

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.
