Neoclassic Buttercream made from The Cake Bible, uncolored and flavored with 1/2 a vanilla bean and a few teaspoons of vanilla extract. Not sure if I screwed up the sugar syrup part of the recipe but I did not like this very much. It was too soft, too buttery (slimy?). The gentle sweetness was nice, however. Next: Silk Meringue Buttercream.

Note: a 2.25 diameter, 4 tablespoon (1/4 cup) capacity half sphere ice cream scoop is a good size for filling cupcake papers. I exchanged scoops so many times at Sur La Table they told me I could come back and exchange it again, but they weren’t required to smile next time.
