Vanilla Cupcakes with "Sprinkles" Vanilla Buttercream

yes, I ate one^^

"Sprinkles" Vanilla Buttercream Recipe

Yield: 12 cupcakes (but, I made 18 cupcakes with this recipe)

1 cup (2 sticks or 6 oz) unsalted butter, softened
3 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt

In a bowl combine butter, sugar and salt. Beat till blended.
Add the milk and vanilla and beat for an additional 3-5 minutes or until smooth and creamy.

But, this recipe was too stiff to pipe out, so I added more milk (about 1~2 tablespoons) to make softer and creamier and it was perfect! Yum :)

Katie + Olivia

Recently, I moved back to Vancouver, Canada, from Boston and had very crazy last couple months to pack all our stuffs, ship them and unpack them again :)

Finally, my new kitchen is all set, so I invited my niece, Olivia, to decorate cookies together.
She was very good at decorating cookies and so happy to eat them as well ^^
We both had so much fun together!
