Sharing is caring!

This icing dries hard and shiny and the colors stay bright. Choose as many different food colorings as you desire.

Ingredients:

  • ½ vanilla bean
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons superfine sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

Split vanilla bean lengthwise with the tip of a sharp knife. Holding the pod open, scrape seeds from each half using the flat side of the knife. Transfer seeds to a large bowl; discard pod.

Pour cream over vanilla seeds; add sugar and vanilla extract. Whip cream with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, 3 to 5 minutes; cover with plastic wrap and chill until ready to serve.
