Notes

I can't remember which of my cupcake cookbooks I got the cake recipe from, but a friend gave me the recipe for the frosting and said, "Here, create a cupcake around this!" No problem, I LOVE anything coffee. These were for a ravioli party I had and they were gone in minutes. Enjoy!

You can also find Vanilla Paste at Trader Joe's. It's really good. About $ 7 for 4 oz.

Ohh those look GREAT!

It's wonderful. The stuff I get is from Williams Sonoma. It's by Neilsen-Massey, the people who make the wonderful Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla. All it is, is vanilla mixed with vanilla bean paste. So you get a double whammy of vanilla. It's a bit thicker than regular vanilla and is a tiny bit sweeter but you use the same amount. PLEASE try it!

My question too...what is vanilla paste?
Is it like almond paste?

wish I knew what vanilla paste was. sounds so yummy! phyllis
