Vanilla Cupcakes From Scratch

Vanilla cupcakes from scratch are a classic, go-to dessert. Fluffy and moist, with a vanilla buttercream frosting. This recipe is one you’ll want to make over and over again.

It’s hard to top up the awesomeness of yesterdays post (and the glory of my KitchenAid mixer), but I was flipping through my things and couldn’t believe I forgot to share this info with you guys.

I love shopping online. It’s easier and I can actually find what I’m looking for without wasting gas, plus most of the time there are better discounts if you check for the coupon codes. What makes it super fun is that sometimes there are surprises included. Sourpuss Clothing always sends something spiffy, whether its cool stickers or a neat set of coasters. How cool is that when you open your package? Bonus!

A few months ago though, I received a package from an online clothing vendor a few shirts I had ordered to find an odd add on bonus. A lacy black eye patch thong….. Um, thanks, but no thanks? I really didn’t know what my reaction should be but I can tell you I did throw that little number away just to be safe.

What about you? How would you react? Ever get anything good?




Here’s something no one can refuse – classic vanilla cupcakes from scratch.

You can store any unused buttercream in the refrigerator in an airtight container; let it come to room temperature and then give it a quick whip in the mixer before using.
