Rosemary Frosting

Rosemary Frosting???

If you like the scent of this herb then you will LOVE this recipe. This makes a lovely and unique wedding cake filling or frosting. 

The Recipe

The infusion for this recipe is easy to make. Just add 5 sprigs of Rosemary to 1/2 pound of unsalted butter. Let it sit for three hours, remove the sprigs and add the butter to your favorite frosting recipe.

You can usually find fresh Rosemary at your grocery store in the vegetable section.

Other Ways to use Rosemary Frosting

These beautiful cupcakes can be created with any buttercream recipe. I used the Italian meringue buttercream and some leftover Rosemary frosting for these. The party goers LOVED the herbal earthy flavor of the Rosemary infused cactus plants.

You can see how to make them at this link on my website. (coming soon) There is a video on that page which is also on YouTube.
