Eats: Buttercream Frosting10:38 AM
A few weeks ago, Kyle and I were in Target looking at all of the clearance items, like you do. I saw a box of strawberry lemonade cake mix, and it just ended up in my cart. I am not above boxed cake mixes, but I am picky. Luckily these came out great, I just needed a frosting to go with. I have never really made my own frosting, so I googled and thought that a buttercream frosting would go great with the tartness of the cupcakes. So that is what I made.
I basically just used this recipe, but I added slightly more whipping cream.
3 cups confectioners sugar
1 cup butter (used vegan butter, came out perfect)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2-3 tablespoons whipping cream
Mix together butter and sugar first, then add the other ingredients. Beat for about 3 minutes. Top with sliced strawberries because delicious.
*I took these to a friend's birthday party. I highly recommend sharing because I was tempted to eat them all and would have gotten diabetes for sure.
