This vanilla frosting recipe is so much better than your everyday vanilla frosting. Regular readers may know that I don’t typically like vanilla frosting. I typically make cream cheese frostings, mascarpone frostings, or glazes. However, this vanilla frosting recipe is an exception. It tastes just like melted vanilla ice cream. In fact, I used it on top of my pumpkin cup-pies (mini pumpkin pies) instead of ice cream.
