Expert Tips

Place any unused frosting in airtight container; refrigerate and use within 5 days. Before using, remove from refrigerator long enough to bring back to room temperature, and stir.

Add a dash of cinnamon to the frosting for a spiced flavor, or use the seeds of a vanilla bean instead of the vanilla for extra vanilla flavor.
