Sour cream frosting is the obvious choice for sour cream cupcakes. This sour cream frosting is based on a basic vanilla bean buttercream frosting. However, instead of using milk in the frosting, the sour cream frosting uses sour cream.

Even if you are not a fan of sour cream, you still may enioy the sour cream frosting. The sour cream flavor is subtle. It adds a pleasant tang which helps to counteract the sweetness of the buttercream. Try it and let me know what you think!

    My friend’s dad makes the most AWESOME chocolate cake with chocolate sour cream frosting. He makes it whenever we go there for dinner. I haven’t had vanilla sour cream frosting though. Definitely need to give this one a try.

  5. Could I substitute vanilla yogurt for the sour cream?

    Camber – Sure!

  7. Ooooh! I think I might try this using plain Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream. Thanks for sharing!
