Blackberry Buttercream Frosting Recipe

Blackberry Buttercream Frosting Recipe

This Blackberry Buttercream Frosting Recipe is so delicious! The blackberries give it the loveliest natural purple color. No food coloring needed. Keep scrolling for this Blackberry Buttercream Frosting Recipe.

Blackberries are produced by different species of the genus Rubus in the family Rosaceae. They are related to raspberries but differ by whether or not the torus stays with the fruit. The torus is basically the stem. Blackberries retain the stem while the raspberry loses it.

The blackberry is not botanically classified as a fruit. It is an aggregate fruit containing small drupelets.  Perfect for this Buttercream Frosting Recipe.

Blackberries are a high ranking antioxidant strength nutritional fruit. They are high in phenolic compounds. Phenolic compounds such as ellagic acid, tannins, ellagitannins, quercetin, gallic acid, anthocyanins, and cyanidins (Hager et al., 2008).

Blackberries are high in vitamin C. Human beings cannot produce vitamin C on our own. It is essential for protein and collagen synthesis. Vitamin C is also essential for some neurotransmitters. Other benefits include immune system support and wound healing.

This recipe for vegan frosting is so easy

Smuckers Marshmallow Topping is delicious and totally vegans! Anyway my family and I just recently got a puppy and she is very sweet.

We love her very much but I had no idea how hard puppies were! She is very rambunctious and loud. The puppy bites very hard (trying to play) but it hurts so bad! She is a golden lab and is already bigger than my 1 year old daughter. I want to cuddle the puppy but she bites me and chews on my cell phone. 

Potty training is impossible! She has already peed on the carpet one time today. We have puppy pads and put her outside in the yard a few times per day. However she just doesn’t understand yet that she can’t go wherever she wants! 

My one year old want to play with her but the puppy jumps on her and scratches and bites! I hope she calms down soon. 

This vegan frosting goes great on cakes and cupcakes

My favorite is white layer cake vanilla cake with blackberry frosting. I love to top with fresh blackberries and sprinkle it with powdered sugar! I’m giving myself dessert cravings just thinking about it.
