For each of these showers I've baked these wonderful (and easy....shhh, don't tell!) chocolate cupcakes. They taste like yummy ones from a professional bakery to me. I was gazing wistfully at the last two left this morning--I really want to eat them, but then there would be no more.
Anyway, I thought I would share this wonderful recipe and also one for the yummy frosting I've used:
Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
Betty Crocker's New Cookbook
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup stick butter, softened
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbls. milk
Mix powdered sugar and butter in a medium bowl. Stir in vanilla and milk. Beat until smooth and spreadable. **This recipe must be doubled for the cupcakes above.
