Vanilla Cupcakes with Butter Frosting

vanilla cupcakes with frostingThese 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.

I’m Julie. This is where my love of cupcakes, digital photography as well as writing comes to life! How did this recipe thing all begin? In November of 2012, I made the decision that I needed to keep a log of my recipes, so I started a simple recipe blog. This beautiful collection of cupcakes and cafe delights continues to grow every week and I can’t wait to see where it is 5 years down the road. My grandma encouraged all of my baking. At family gatherings with well over 250 individuals the midst of absolutely no where, she consistently was able to create perfect cherry cobblers along with other goodies for dessert over the campfire. It seemed to be like magic for me.
