Butter Cream Frosting

  • In a mixing bowl with a hand mixer or stand mixer with paddle, beat butter on medium until fluffy. Lower speed to low and slowly add powdered sugar and an optional pinch of salt
  • When completely mixed, add vanilla (if you want the frosting to be completely white, use clear vanilla, I did not have any )Turn the mixer back to medium and mix for 4-6 minutes -if it is too thick add more milk - a little at a time or if too thin, slowly add more powdered sugar
  • Set half the frosting aside, leaving it white. Divide the other half into 3 bowls or however many colors you want to use. Add 4 or 5 drops of food coloring to each bowl.
  • With Butterknife or frosting spatula, frost the cupcakes With colored frosting spread across the top ⅓ of cupcake bringing frosting to a narrower point at the side.
  • Sprinkle granulated or sanding sugar on the cupcake, making them shine/ sparkle. Use mini chocolate chips for eyes and mouth, m&ms for the nose. Sprinkle Shredded coconut on cupcakes
