      Katie mentioned that she only uses unsalted butter in her frostings and that she also "pipes" her frosting on cupcakes rather than spreading with a knife or spatula.

      I have been a cream cheese frosting lover and user since the 1970's and this is the lightest most flavorful frosting I have ever come across. It was easy to frost my cupcakes with a pastry bag, and the lovely vanilla bean flavor was heavenly. I will not use any of my old recipes going forward, or ever search for another!!
