Billy’s vanilla frosting!

Nearly 3 years ago, Billy Reece, owner of Billy’s Bakery, NYC, shared his infamous recipe, for Billy’s Vanilla Buttercream on the Martha Stewart.  After seeing plenty of hype about this recipe in multiple blogs and Martha Stewart’s website, I knew I was destined to make this recipe atleast once.   It ended up being very easy to make and came out with impressive results.  Billy’s Vanilla Buttercream is certaily not your stereotypical commercial bakery frosting recipe- you know, the kind where it is so sweet you could clinch… However,  it is somewhat close!  It was a little buttery, a little vanilley, and a little more than a little rich… and I liked it A LOT more than just a little.  Until I find a better recipe, Billy’s Vanilla Buttercream is my go-to for cakes and cupcakes from now on.

This delicious batch of frosting  topped my “extra large” chocolate cupcakes.   I topped  the frosting with dark brown chocolate sprinkles to compliment the chocolate cupcake.
