As part of my "wear your ugly bridesmaid dress again" party, I'd like to make some white wedding-y cupcakes, or just a light vanilla. Anyone have a really stellar recipe? I have never found one that is the end-all be-all for vanilla.
Also, for frosting, I'd love to make something that will allow me to do big, easy, pretty swirls. My usual cream cheese frosting won't work as well, as it's too dense. Am I destined to have to stick with buttercream? Thanks!
