      I made this yesterday and served on moist white cupcakes -- it was fabulous! I used homemade rum-based vanilla extract and added a bit more than the recipe required. These were definitely "grown up" cupcakes! I look forward to making this frosting again -- it's a nice twist on a standard buttercream (and I appreciate the 1:2 butter/sugar ratio -- most recipes have FAR too much sugar). Thanks Roxanne!!
