Shiro-An Vanilla Cream
The shiro-an gives this frosting a richer taste and a little bit of texture. It offsets the yuzu flavor in the Yuzu-Vanilla Cupcakes nicely.
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 1/4 cups Shiro-An
- 1/4 vanilla bean, scraped
Whisk cream in mixer bowl until stiff peaks form. Fold in shiro-an and vanilla-bean seeds; whisk until fully blended. Use immediately or refrigerate, covered, up to overnight.
