Vanilla Bean Buttercream

I'm a little bit obsessed with vanilla beans. I, however, have to confess, I have yet to actually use a vanilla bean, but I'm in love with vanilla bean ice cream AND I found the coolest stuff at Williams and Sonoma: vanilla bean paste. FANTABULOUS! Soooooo! I changed up my vanilla buttercream recipe by replacing the vanilla with vanilla bean paste. I add A LOT (sorry again... I don't really measure)... SEVERAL tablespoons until I could really taste the vanilla bean.

This is the pink vanilla bean buttercream we did for Hannah's b-day.
It really made the difference, AND it leaves those cool vanilla bean flecks which make your frosting look oh so gourmet.
