Buttercream Recipe Plus How To Ice Cupcakes!

In case you missed it, a couple weeks ago we cooked cupcakes on our Traeger Bbq. When we first started carrying the Traeger, Tom told us that at high heat the Traeger works just like a convection oven. To be honest, I was a skeptic. How would this BBQ that at low heat is a smoker turn into a convection oven at high heat? We decided to test it out by cooking my favourite thing, cupcakes. 

Spoiler alert, they turned out delicious. 

We did a live Facebook broadcast of the reveal:

We also did a cupcake icing tutorial which you can see here:

The videos were really well received and so were the cupcakes! We had several people ask us for the vanilla bean buttercream recipe we used, so here it is! Just an FYI I use a lot of buttercream.... like a lot. This yields enough for me to ice about 24 cupcakes. You may find that you want to cut the recipe in half. 

If you have any questions please leave them for us in the comments! Enjoy!
