Serves: 6 cupcakes
  • Vanilla Frosting :
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp milk / water
  • Sprinkles
  1. Click on the chocolate cupcakes link &Make the chocolate cupcakes as described.
  2. Once done, let them cool on a cooling rack.
  3. Meanwhile make your frosting.
  4. In a bowl cream softened butter for good 2-3 minutes until soft & fluffy. You want it to be really creamy.
  5. If you don't have room temperature butter, put it in a bowl and place in microwave. Heat it in intervals of 5 seconds until it's just at room temperaute. Make sure you don't melt the butter or frosting won't come out right!
  6. Once butter is ready, add powdered sugar,salt, vanilla extract and milk/water and mix for another 3-4 minutes until light and fluffy.
  7. Now you can use the frosting as it is or add drops of your favorite food color!
  8. I divided my icing in 3 batches. In one batch, I used 2 red + 2 yellow food color drops, in another 2 green food colors, in third 2 blue colors drop.
  9. Frost the cupcakes. I went with a really simple flat top method. All you do is place a good amount of frosting on each cupcake and then using a flat spatula, even it out. Then I went ahead and added sprinkles on the side.
