Vanilla Cupcakes with Butter Frosting

These are really sweet and yummy. The frosting is very smooth and easy to make. It goes through the piping bag quite easily.

I decided to top these with sprinkles of hundreds and thousands and chocolate hail. You can top with whatever you like or even let the kids sprinkle their favorite topping.

I made these smaller, more like mini cupcakes so there are more to go around for the smaller eater, or those who are watching their waistline.

If I did the paper ones again I would sit them into a muffin tin so they keep their shape better while baking.

The smaller cupcakes are ideal for eating with a cake fork.
