Nutella Buttercream Frosting

Frosting is not my favorite thing. I usually avoid eating frosting. I know, I know. You’re probably thinking, “What is wrong with this lady?!!” I just say I’m the perfect person to share a cupcake with because I’m always willing to give up my untouched frosting to the first taker. Well, that was until I met this Nutella Buttercream frosting. It’s so delicious, smooth, incredibly easy to pipe, and the PERFECT frosting to use for cake/cupcake decorating. P.S. It’s also amazing as a filling for macarons.
