I made these cupcakes this week. This was my first attempt at piping the icing and filling cupcakes. I think they turned out pretty darn good. Everyone says they tasted really good too. For my personal taste I think they were a bit too sweet. I'm looking forward to making other types of cupcakes now. I'm on the search for new and exciting recipes to try. :)
The recipe I used for the cupcakes and frosting can be found here.
- 1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
- 1/4 cup shortening
- 2 cups confectioners' sugar
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Pinch salt
