Birthday Cupcake Perfection*

7 Jan

I’m sorry for the lack of posts lately. Between work and everything, I’ve been crazy swamped. I figured these incredible cupcakes might make up for it. They’re simple. Yellow cake with cake batter frosting. Holy perfection! They are the perfect birthday cupcake.

Ingredients–Cake
-1 cup (2 sticks) of butter (room temperature)
-2 cups of sugar
-4 eggs (room temperature)
-3 cups of sifted self-rising flour
-1 cup of whole milk (room temperature)
-1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Directions
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
-Using a mixer, cream butter until fluffy.
-Add sugar and continue to cream for about 7 minutes.
-Add eggs one at a time. Beat well after each egg is added.
-Add flour and milk (alternating to creamed mixture), beginning and ending with flour. Add vanilla
-Bake for 25 – 30 minutes until done.

Ingredients–Frosting
-1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
-1 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
-1/4 cup boxed cake mix (I went with Funfetti)
-1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Directions
-beat butter until fluffy
-slowly add in powdered sugar
-add in cake mix and vanilla

Have a birthday coming up? Make these!
