Call me a cynic but generally, I’m not a huge fan of buttercream. I love how they’re perfect for piped flowers and frosted cakes but the taste, I’ll pass. Lo and behold, note Nina’s AMAZING buttercream. It’s made from vanilla bean paste and condensed milk. Condensed milk! Holy cow — no pun intended — but this will be your next favorite buttercream. It’s like a flan without the egg-taste. I am definitely going to use it to frost most my cake. Great tutorial and I love how aside how she makes her buttercream and how to pipe flowers, she shows how to color the buttercream, a step most baker’s don’t include in their videos. You will love this tutorial!
