This is a very good buttercream recipe. I used it to make a fondant cake and it worked perfectly. Unlike the other review, I found the espresso flavour to be perfect with the added flavour of the vanilla. Not too bitter at all. My only possible criticism is that it seemed very sweet, but I mean, it's buttercream! Great recipe.
