Baby Shower Cupcakes!

cupcake2Today I am catering a baby shower.  I wanted to do something really really cute.  And I believe I achieved that.  Plus, these cupcakes taste INCREDIBLE.

The recipe for the batter is found here: White Wedding Cupcakes.  Great recipe, highly recommend.

For the buttercream, I mixed 3 sticks of very, very soft room temperature SALTED butter with 4 cups of powdered sugar, some Tahitian vanilla extract, and a dash of heavy cream.  Mix it until it’s super, super soft and pliable.  I mean, it’s decadent but it’s a baby shower.  C’mon.

I dyed the frosting with my favorite food coloring, these guys.  A little bit goes a loooong way.  This was about 3 drops, and it’s even a little darker than I wanted it to be.

Finally, the sugar decorations and cupcake papers are from Fancy Flours.  They have some great sales!

Came out pretty cute, right?
