I recently hosted a dessert decorating workshop where I made at least 8 batches of my vanilla buttercream.  I ranted and raved about how easy it was to make and told everyone in attendance that I’d post a link to it on my blog.

Strangely enough, I’ve never actually posted this recipe just on it’s own but I’ve used it in so many places on my blog!
