I live firmly in the “you can never have enough different types of frosting” camp. Regular buttercream and whipped cream are great standards to start with, but it is always great to create a fun flavor like this marshmallow buttercream.
Two famous bakery outlets were less than a mile from the house where I grew up. We were so lucky! My mom was the bargain shopping queen, with four hungry children in the house and a very tight budget. I can remember her taking my brothers and me to those outlets, to stock up on all our favorites. She freeze those treats, to dole out sparingly, so that they lasted as long as possible.
My favorite treat was a chocolate snack cake filled with a marshmallow frosting filling. I wouldn’t even wait for it to defrost and it was delicious. This marshmallow buttercream reminds me of all those marshmallow filled chocolate cake treats.
Kids of all ages will enjoy topping their favorite cakes with this marshmallow buttercream frosting.
Light and fluffy, with a delicious marshmallowy taste, this frosting is a delicious alternative from plain buttercream and whipped cream for cupcakes, cakes, and sandwich cookie fillings.
