K.I.S.S – Keep it simple stupid!
After my recent baking fails, I decided to keep it nice and simple when my kids asked me if we could bake something last Friday afternoon. No fancy tricks, no new recipes, just something I have cooked a zillion times before that are easy and delicious – simple vanilla cupcakes, with butter icing and sprinkles, of course!
And here is a recipe for butter creaming icing (frosting). It is just a little buttery, and makes just enough to ice these cupcakes!
- 20 gm softened butter
- 1 1/2 cups of icing sugar
- 2 tbsp milk
- Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and icing sugar until well combined and creamy.
- Add the milk a little at a time, adding more or less depending on how stiff or runny you want the icing to be.
