Mini Vanilla Birthday Cupcakes


Mini Vanilla Birthday Cupcakes

3 cups flour

2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 sticks unsalted butter, softened

2 cups sugar

2 eggs

1 1/4 cups buttermilk

2 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat oven to 350°. Line a mini muffin pan with paper wrappers. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Mix in eggs one at a time. In a small bowl, mix together vanilla extract and buttermilk. With the mixer running on low, add about half of the flour mixture followed by half of the buttermilk mixture. Divide batter into the prepared pans (in many batches–by my count this recipe makes at least 90 cupcakes) and bake for about 10 minutes, until just barely golden brown.

Marshmallow Frosting

1, 16 ounce jar marshmallow creme

3 sticks unsalted butter, softened

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 cup powdered sugar

7 drops red food coloring

In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter and marshmallow creme together until light and fluffy. Add powdered sugar, food coloring and vanilla and beat until frosting reaches the right consistency for piping. Pipe as desired onto the cupcakes.
