A friend (Hi, Pam! ü) gave me some vanilla beans many months back. I was only able to open it last month as I was planning to make vanilla bean cupcakes but that did not happen for some reason. I thought I’d make a batch of vanilla extract first after seeing it somewhere and finding […]

Spider Cake

Mocha Meringue Buttercream

This is a cross between Italian Meringue Butter Cream (aka IMBC to homebakers like myself) and French Butter Cream or Mousseline.
