Gingerbread Buttercream

Make sure the butter is at room temperature; cold butter will cause the buttercream to have a curdled appearance. Use this to make our Gingerbread Town-Square Cake.

    I made the Gingerbread Town Square Cake sans the gingerbread houses. I substituted the Seven-Minute Frosting for an Italian Meringue and decorated the cake for a baby shower. It was delicious except I felt the gingerbread buttercream was too rich; there was too much butter in this recipe. I will definitely make this cake again, however I will eliminate the gingerbread buttercream and substitute a ginger-flavored, lighter filling.
