Spring Cupcakes!

Happy Spring, everyone!  :)  I made more of my mini-cupcakes, using my tried and true recipe.  To frost them, I used this simple butter frosting recipe on that same recipe.  It made too much for my little mini's, so I used the rest to make graham cracker sandwiches.  I was able to make about 10 or 11 of them with the rest of the frosting!  Here is the frosting recipe again:

Classic Butter Frosting

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 package (16 ounces) confectioner's sugar
4-6 tablespoons milk, half-and-half, or cream
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
pink or red food coloring, optional

In large bowl, with mixer at medium-low speed, beat butter, sugar, 3 tablespoons milk or cream, and vanilla until smooth and blended. Beat in additional milk as needed for easy spreading consistency. Increase speed to medium-high; beat frosting until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Makes about 2 1/2 cups.

What beautiful little cupcakes! Love the color too. And the graham cracker/icing is such a good idea--drooling. ;)
